  • Read more 09MAR2014: Germania stripped of Iraqi traffic rights on Iraqi Airways' request
    Germania (ST, Berlin Schönefeld) has been stripped of its Iraqi traffic rights with immediate effect ch-aviation has been exclusively informed by the carrier.

    According to sources, Iraqi Airways (IA, Baghdad) recently lodged an appeal with the Iraqi Ministry of Transport to revoke Germania's traffic rights in a bid to squeeze out competition on flights between Iraq and Scandinavia.

    Germania had competed with Iraqi Airways with its flights from Erbil and Sulaymaniyah to Dusseldorf, Munich and Stockholm Arlanda. According to press reports in Iraq, Greek charter carrier Hermes Airlines (H3, Athens Int'l) has also had its traffic rights for charter flights linking Sweden with Iraq withdrawn.
  • Read more 02MAR2014: Air Méditerranée renews AOC; bemoans Transavia's impact on charter ops
    Air Méditerranée (ML, Lourdes/Tarbes) has renewed its Air Operators Certificate (AOC) following an audit of its finances by the French Directorate General for Civil Aviation (Direction Générale de l'Aviation Civile - DGAC).

    Its previous AOC expired on February 28.

    In an interview with France's Tourmag, CEO Anthony Ferretti said Air Méditerranée hoped to break even this year on the back of strong results from its Greek subsidiary, Hermes Airlines (H3, Athens Int'l). Ferretti did highlight the continuing negative impact of rival Transavia France (TO, Paris Orly) on its charter operations.

    "Our charter model has suffered, especially in the face of Transavia, which was functioning at a loss to gain shares of the market. This behavior has compromised our business and we had to reposition ourselves as a hybrid company, even if the charter still accounts for 54 % of our business. Yet our scheduled flights, launched in 2009 have increased in 2012 and 2013. These lines attract “the friends and family” traffic which is more stable than the tourist traffic," he said.

    Using its fleet of five A321-200s and three B737-500s, Air Méditerranée operates both scheduled and charter passenger flights covering Western Europe, the Mediterranean, North Africa and West Africa.

  • Read more 04OCT2013: UK CAA temporarily grounds Business Air B767 due to missing permits
    Business Air (Thailand) (8B, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi) has been forced to stop its Hajj charter flights between the UK and Saudi-Arabia after the UK civil aviation authority has grounded one of its B767-300(ER)s HS-BIH (msn 26608) at Leeds/Bradford. According to the UK CAA, Business Air did not possess the correct permits to operate to the country and the aircraft has therefore been "grounded until the situation can be resolved". While the aircraft has since left Leeds/Bradford without passengers, Air Méditerranée (ML, Lourdes/Tarbes) and its Greek subsidiary Hermes Airlines (H3, Athens Int'l) have reportedly been contracted to operate the flights for Muslim pilgrims performing Hajj instead although the use of A321s requires a stop in Greece as their aircraft cannot operate non-stop.
