Anyone know anything about this carrier, Trans Atlantic Airlines? The article says that an IAH/Banjul service starts next month. Supposedly service from JFK and IAD started last month. This really came out of nowhere.

So is this airline for real or like so many others before only a "paper carrier?"

They are real. They are flying from Dulles, JFK, and Houston to various African cities. From the top of my head, those include Lagos, Port Harocourt, Banjul, Freetown, and Dakar. They are leasing a 747 (I think a -200), an A330, and a 737-300 that will be used intra-Africa.

Well its good to know that they are legit and not a "paper airline". I might head over to the photo section and get some of the D.C or NYC boys to get some pics of this mystery carrier.

Actually they are not flying from IAH yet. That supposedly begins sometime in Dec.

Thanks,

Thomas

I hope KC are legit, they are already distributed in Amadeus - but their flights are still listed as On Request only, so they may not ACTUALLY be up and running yet.

I believe they are using an Air Luxor A-330. Their offices aren't too far from mine in downtown New York. I read somewhere that they are principally backed by a Nigerian businessman with real estate interests in NY.
