Great name, especially for a Spanish carrier. At first thought they were another charter/IT carrier but see they are more long haul with some very interesting destinations. Kinshasa and Lumbumbashi are suprises but nice to see some more airlines serving, particularly Kinshasa where SN have a big monopoly on flights to Europe.
Good news for the DR Congo and hope it increases tourism and business to that country.

Quoting RAFVC10 (Reply 3): From where have they acquired these aircrafts?? (762, 752 and F50!!!!!!).
The 767-219ER has been rented to ILFC for a period of three years and it was previously operated by Swe Fly.
The 757 and Fokker 50 will be used for their european flights but I have no info regarding where they come from. This new carrier was founded in Madrid almost two years ago even tho they will start to operate in the first quarter of this year.
Their aim is to fill up the gaps left on these routes by Air Afrique and Air Zaire. I also wonder if they will succeed but only time will tell...
