Yes it’s May 2005, and as time passes, June nears. June will be an important month, after all it will be 1 year since the idea of Air Lambert was first spoken, and the 25th will be the launch of our long haul services.
But this doesn’t mean May isn’t important. This is the month when the Airbus A318 enters operations with us and the 747-200 takes to the skies with its fresh coat of Air Lambert colours.
So, let’s get started.
Firstly, check out our new Summer Season 05 ad (right click and ‘save as’ to download or just click to watch now)
Our first Airbus A318 has been delivered and will enter service sometime this week on the Manchester and Jersey runs. G-LMDA, Pride of Jersey, will operate the same route structure daily (LGW-JER-LGW-MAN-LGW-JER-LGW) until Sunday, when ‘DB’ enters service. The other flights on this route will be operated by the Airbus A319 until the A318 takes over completely at the end of the month. Here are some photos of our first A318 on her delivery flight:
