I've been hearing and reading about Key Lime Air, and was wondering who they are. I know they operate out of DEN with Metros but where do they fly to? How old are they? Are they a commercial airline? I have found very little information about them and I figured someone here might know something. Any help?

Quoting Web (Reply 3): Thanks for the clarification. Now I know why I never saw them when I was at DEN in January; they're at the cargo ramp (correct?).
Yep, they keep most of their metros at the Cargo ramp at DEN. Also, they have a fairly sizeable mx base at APA, and a smaller hub operation at GJT. Apparantly, UPS was so pleased with Key Lime's service that they raised the amount that they were paying LYM, and also asked LYM to take over the SLC and Carribean feeder operations for UPS. LYM not having enough metros decided to politely decline. They also operate a smaller fleet of Piper Navajo's for DHL and a smaller company called Kangaroo Express.

Don't quote me on this but I think 787KL might be back flying, the only photo of her in the db is from right after she was damaged, still in Wyoming, but last summer I saw her at the APA mx facility undergoing maintenance so I think she rejoined the fleet.

Could be. They had a couple of nosegear collapses and it wouldn't suprise me if some of their less-damaged airframes would be repaired. After all, having 5 aircraft out of service for a company that small...
