A new airline offering ACMI leases with L-1011 TriStars will be based at Shannon, Ireland. The airline’s Chief Executive Officer Neil Robertson currently works with Africargo Airlines, which operates regional and cargo operations from Bujumbara, Burundi. He confirmed that the as-yet unnamed company has sent a Letter of Intent on February 9th to Delta Air Lines for their entire fleet of 44 L-1011s, which consists of 15 -500s, 6 -250s and 23 -1s.

"We intend to convert all of the -250s and some of the -500s to freighters, and operate the remeinder in a passenger configuration.”, he said. He also reported that the company has been in discussions with Custom Air Support Holdings of Miami regarding the purchase of all 16 former Saudia Arabian -200s which were purchased by the leasing company last November.

Shannon has been selected as its hub because of special deals on taxation, grants and subsidies. The company also plans to install an L-1011 flight simulator and a RB211 engine overhaul facility at the airport; both of which are being included in the Delta package.

Robertson says that the company will submit its AOC application shortly to the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) and hopes to have the first L-1011s delivered in time for the year 2000 summer season. Letters of intent are currently held from two airlines, and the company is in discussions with a Middle Eastern government about setting up a new airline for them using L-1011s

Having flown the L1011 with Delta ever since 1984, this is a very sad day; this bird will surely be missed from one of the great airlines in the world.

How many other U.S. airlines use L-1011????

Is this going to be the end of the L-1011 in America ?
