  • Read more 06FEB2014: Finland's Turku Airport to close between June and July
    Wizz Air (W6, Budapest) will switch its 5x weekly services from Gdansk to Turku, to Helsinki Vantaa over the period June 30 to July 27, 2014. The Hungarian LCC says the move is as a result of runway upgrade works at Turku. As of this post, it is uncertain as to what contingency plans Turku's other airlines - Air Baltic (BT, Riga), Finnair (AY, Helsinki Vantaa), NextJet (2N, Stockholm Arlanda), Norwegian (DY, Oslo Gardermoen), and SAS Scandinavian Airlines (SK, Copenhagen Kastrup) - have in place, if any.
  • Read more 13JAN2014: No designs on LOT, Air Baltic asserts Etihad boss James Hogan
    Etihad Airways (EY, Abu Dhabi Int'l) CEO James Hogan has denied having any designs on either LOT Polish Airlines (LO, Warsaw Chopin) or Air Baltic (BT, Riga) and nor does his carrier have any interest in acquiring a stake in Aeroporti di Roma's Rome Fiumicino airport. Rumours have been circulating of the airline's purported shopping list which has so far seen it acquire a 33.3% shareholding in Switzerland's Darwin Airline (F7, Lugano). On the issue of the airline's much vaunted talks with Alitalia (AZ, Rome Fiumicino), Mr Hogan told Reuters in Berlin that Etihad would not be rushed into any deal with the Italians. "There are no plans to make any announcement at the end of this month," he said. "What is important in any transaction is that you undertake your due diligence and ensure if you are going to invest, there is a clear plan to move to profitability. We will not be rushed into making a decision," he concluded. Earlier in the year, Italian paper, Il Messaggero, had claimed that a potential deal between the Emiratis and the struggling Italian national carrier could be tabled as early as this week.

  • Read more 09OCT2013: Etihad adding five B777-200(LR)s for LA flights, partnering Air Baltic
    Etihad Airways (EY, Abu Dhabi Int'l) will make Los Angeles Int'l its fourth US destination next year when it will launch daily flights from its Abu Dhabi Int'l hub to its first US West Coast city in its network from June 1, 2014. Etihad plans to use B777-200(LR) aircraft for the service that Etihad will acquire from Indian national carrier Air India (AI, Mumbai Int'l). It will acquire five of Air India's eight aircraft. Etihad already serves Chicago O'Hare, New York JFK and Washington Dulles in the US as well as Toronto Pearson using a mix of A340-600s and B777-300(ER)s. In other news, Etihad has entered into a partnership agreement with Air Baltic (BT, Riga) that will see the Latvian carrier use an A319-100 of Etihad partner CSA Czech Airlines (OK, Prague) to introduce a new four times weekly A319-100 service linking Riga with Abu Dhabi from December 16. This new route will replace Air Baltic's previous route to Dubai Int'l.
  • Read more 29JUL2013: Maastricht Airlines would use jets, not props, if ops begin - Huppertz
    Maastricht Airlines (Maastricht) would start operations using jet aircraft, as opposed to Fokker 50s as originally intended, should the venture secure adequate funding, the airline's curator, Mr John Huppertz, has said. Unlucky Maastricht were to have begun flights earlier this year using two ex-Air Baltic (BT, Riga) Fokker 50s on lease from Italy's MiniLiner (MNL, Milan Orio al Serio). However, its launch was continuously delayed, before being cancelled outright, after it was reportedly found that the aircraft were in need of "an additional 1'800 hours of maintenance" before they could enter service.
