The Avion Group has controlling interest in Xtra. The first two aircraft a B737-400 & 800 are both ex AirExcel aircraft. The 400 was TF-ELP now N42XA and the 800 was G-XLAG.
They do plan to recieve more aircraft. The B737-200s have been sold and are no longer flying for CXP. Also they will end the Red Lion Casino flights at Elko, Nevada on 2/1/06. However the Wendover flights will still operate.

The routes will all be flown for Vacation Express, hence the slightly odd routings. From what I have seen, the fleet will consist of a mixture of 737-400s and 737-800s, with the -800s only operating for the winter season. I think since they are partly owned by Avion Group, the parent of Excel in the UK and Air Atlanta Iceland, that at least some of the aircraft will come from them. I think they are also operating a program out of Logan for TNT using a 737-800 leased from Excel (should be G-XLAG).
