Airlines With Only ONE Plane?

I was wondering if somewhere there is an airline with only one plane. I mean, a "real" airline with a fix timetable and a convenient infrastructure (albeit small, that is clear). It is possible technically (what do they do when they face repairs or overhauls?) or legally (do you need a minimum number of aircraft to be considered a proper airline?). Thank you for your comments

VS as I recall started with a single second 747 (ex AR , I think )-there is a even a quote from SRB at the time to the effect that "with only one plane we will either have the worlds best safety record - or the worlds worst" of course they didn't stay with one a/c for long

Last I knew Air Nauru only had one aircraft. Check me if I'm wrong. Isn't there also a new airline out of Thailand or somewhere down there that has one L-1011. I saw a picture of it at HKG recently. Has a bluish-purple color scheme. There is or was Focus Air, with only one 747-300 (last I knew, things change so fast that my facts always seem outdated  Wink )

Amakusa Airlines operates 1 Dash 8-Q100 aircraft, they operate out of Amakusa to Fukuoka and Kumamoto. That one aircraft has a nice paintsheme, featuring Dolphins.

Galaxy Airlines ordered one A300F, to start cargo flights out of Japan.

ANA Cargo only operates one 767-300F at the moment

hydro cargo was this one cargo airline that operated from South Africa via Nigeria to BRU, they lost their sole aircraft when it skid of the runway.

Does Hewra Bora have more than one aircraft?

You are only talking about fleet type. The author of this topic is wondering about airlines who only have 1 aircraft not more than 1 aircraft in the same fleet.

JetBlue flys 82 A320-200's as of this post, and I think they already have an E190.
Southwest has 436 737's including the -300, -500, and -700.

Doesn't sound like one plane to me.

There was a thread a while ago about this, you can try searching the archives and see if it comes up.

IIRC, Air Hong Kong for the longest time had a 747 classic (I think it was a 100) and that was the only thing they had. Now they have a few planes and are ordering mroe

A few years ago I flew with a Tu-134 from Bargouzin Airline, a Russian carrier, and that was their only airplane. But they're bankrupt now, by the way.

Antonov Design Bureau doesn't have only one plane, but they have only one AN-225. I find that an amazing and high risk operation to watch. (I keep hoping they'll complete the second one, which largely exists in pieces, so they say.)

Casino Express started with one aircraft. I don't know if this is consider an airline cause they don't have schedule service. Hell I don't know if they still operate.

What about Druk Air/Royal Bhutan Airlines? They did have a fleet of 2 BAe-146's, but only used one (some say one was reserved for the king and the other for revenue flights). I know they're operating an A-319 now, and that might be it for scheduled flights.
