The airline is Air Horizon headquartered in LOME TOGO. Funny is the schedule of BKK-DXB-JED-LFW flight 8C111
it is departing BKK day 2 at 0130 landing in DXB at 0430 continuing to JED and LFW at 1530. In other words 11 hours ground time in DXB. After small investigation I found spectacular flight 8C1111 day 2 from DXB to SDA (big surprise Baghdad international airport) leaving DXB at 0630 landing in SDA at 0800 and returning as 8C1112 day 2 from SDA at 0900 arriving DXB 1230.
Till now I did not hear about any scheduled flights to/from SDA yet except occasional flights from AMM. Seems to me a little strange. Also I did not find any info about 8C fleet neither on airfleets.net nor on planemad.net, regardless both aircraft types they operate (737,767) are supported there.
Can anybody confirm that this airline is not only paper (or screen) one.



just fly - it is nice

The also fly to johanesburg via (a weird name) on a 737. is that a virtual airline? LOL and to baghdad?? i mean from Lome? lol come on there must be a trick, bet eurostar, ETstar might drops us a line lol
Probably routine is BKK-DXB-SAD-DXB-JED-LFW what a journey? how about crew for this weekly flight maybe the layovers are in dxb till it has its roundtrip to baghdad

Yeaah, their flights to JNB are also funny. They should operate it daily via Borotou (BRZ), Ivory Coast, which should be mistake according me. I suggest correct routing should be via BZV. Regarding SDA they are supposed to have 3 weekly rotations in there from DXB (8C1111/1112 day 2, 8C1401/1402 day 4 and 8C1601/1602 day 6). Flights on day 4 and 6 are between flights 8C140/141 and 8C160/161 LFW-JED-DXB-JED-LFW. Desperately need to know if it is true or not. May be some of our friends from France can confirm, because 8C is supposed to operate 3 times weekly MRS and CDG with their 767 on days 3/5/7 as well.
