Ocean Airways (OG) of France will be starting servive from EWR to NTE and TLS on Friday, May 28th with an A340-200. The flight will be non-stop from EWR to NTE on Friday and Sunday, and go via TLS on Tuesdays. All flights to EWR are non-stop from NTE. There is some limited information at their website. http://www.ocean-airways.com There are no timetables there though, you have to go to Amadeus for that.
I have tried to find fares on OG but can't. No number in the US, their flights aren't on expedia, orbitz, or any of the reservations systems. Only their timetable is available through Amadeus, as I said earlier. Does anybody know where to find fares and make reservations? (Their french number doesn't work from the USA. Not sure why.)

Happy Flying,
Nick

Is there enough demand for these flights?

I'd think that if there was sufficient demand, AF would be flying them. Although, it could be a case like the JFK-NCE flights flown by DL. AF codeshares on this, I believe. But, if the airline actually comes into fruition, gets the A340-200, how long will it last, if it doesn't go broke before the first flight?

I don't know how long they'll last, but if they're cheap I'll be flying them about 10 days after they start up. Hopefully they will last as least that long....

Could these be 'scheduled charter' flights, or operated for travel packages mainly for French market? Right now there is a substantial demand for flights to the US from Europe due to the favorable (for them) exchange rates. There's may also be slots open at EWR for flights to/from France for an operator from France.

Still no news on Ocean Airways.. it might be a sham unfortunately.. they are trying to get their first A340 for EWR and YUL services.

On similar topic, I have heard of a new French start-up that wants to start flying between Ft. Lauderdale and Nice with a 763. That is all I know if it, anybody know more (other than the fact they are not going to get off the ground)?

when are they looking to start EWR services? I am deeply worried about their loads since AF itself can't get decent loads on the CDG-EWR service right now. Last month I flew EWR-CDG-EWR with less than 100 people on the A340 each time. I spoke to one of the check in agents at EWR and she told me this is normal for this time of the year. I know loads in summer will rise, but still NTE-EWR seems a little bit over-ambitious to me unless they are scheduled charters.

cheers

If they're not legit, then why is Amadeus listing them on the timetables?

Where do these new airlines get gate and ticket counter space at EWR? Terminal A is maxxed out - already established airlines have to share gates (AS and ATA come to mind) and CO won't give up the gates they have in A for anything. Terminal B has DL, NW, and all the internationals, which on occasion have to use hardstands due to lack of space (although admittedly not frequently like LHR), and Terminal C is CO's domain, built and customized for them (the gate agent podiums have the CO logo built into the entire back) without any available gates whatsoever (hence the reason they need A).

There's tons of room for new International entrants at EWR, remember CO up untill two years ago had ALL of their International Arrivals at Terminal B.

With CO's International Arrivals now at Terminal C there are alot of open gates at the Terminal B IAB, also there are some airlines that EWR has lost since September 11th that still have not come back yet.

Aer Lingus, Korean Air etc..

Egyptair is planning to start serving Newark from CAI to complement their 6x weekly 777 services to JFK (always full). After recent restructuring the airline is planning to open this new route to capture more of the US-Egypt market. Currently many passengers fly with European airlines and connect from their respective hubs to CAI. No details have been released yet but I'll keep you up-to-date as soon as anything is known.

The airline is also planning to launch flights to Houston, Texas in 2005.

I agree, there is still room for international carriers at EWR - the terminal C expansion by CO plus EWR's loss of airlines like Sabena, Korean and AerLingus has opened up some space. However, EWR is getting a bit tight on gates: a lot will depend on the fate of US and UA, and if airlines like ATA are really commited to operating out of EWR. (I think I read that ATA is already dropping its EWR-SFO flights?)

If Egyptair is planning to introduce service to both EWR and IAH in the near future, I would assume that they are going to make friends with CO!

A Dutch airline wants (or wanted depending on its status) to offer daily BBJ flights (a la Lufthansa) between Rotterdam and Newark. However, I haven't heard anything after their first (and last?) press release.........
