Izair is getting ready to start operations this April from its base in Izmir, with its 3 A319s. The logo (colors of the Aegean and the sunset) and the livery designed by landor is below:

Also they are in talks to get A320s, and Bombardier planes. They are planning to start operations with 5 planes; and fly domestically to Antalya, Adana, Dalaman, Ankara and Istanbul; and to Amsterdam, Athens, Frankfurt, London, Stuttgart, Vienna and Zurich internationally. Pilots are training in Tunisia at Airbus facilities.
Their business plan calls for 9 planes and $4 mil.profit by 2007, and 15 planes and $43 mil. by 2010.

Good luck to them. The logo and the livery is just boring, no imagination. Personally I think they could have used more local flavor in the design.

Good luck. It's a big business plan that is built on the new investments on the Aegean cost, instead of the Antalya region. Are these new aircraft or the former Independence Air ones?

Bahadir,
The first three are the former Independence ones, and the article says they are in Hamburg now, at least the two. (paint job?) I think one is already in Izmir doing test flights.
Another interesting news on that website, there is a rumor of Atlas trying to get a A340 for IST-JFK.

I thought they ordered some CRJ-900's?

Do you mean Atlas? Yes, I think they did, two ER's, but I am not sure. Also last week here on a.net there was a thread about CRJ-900 being demonstrated to TK in IST.

Interesting news. I guess IzAir can become a succesfu airline when looking at all the charter flights to/from Izmir. In Holland this is a very popular tourist destination with a lot of charterflights.

The domestic destinations look promising too as most of these destinations are larger cities. If IzAir will be a low cost airline they might have quite some potential. Which other Turkish airlines fly to/from Izmir?

About AtlasJet looking for an A343, wow, would be nice if that will become a reality. There have been rumours floating around for quite some time that anotyher Turkish airline wants to start flying Transatlantic. Interesting, as I've said before, the Turkish market will become a BIG market over the coming years with a lot of potential. It's a growing market and airlines should focus more on Türkiye in my opinion.

Good luck to IzAir and all Turkish airlines of course. Should be interesting....

True on A340s, but not only for a New York service.

Wow, now that is interesting. Europe or Asia or both?
That brings another point, how many planes would they need?

No. I meant Izmir. I found some links, I remember reading it in Airliners World Magazine

BTW when will the Donbassaero CRJ-700 and Styrian CRJ-900 be delivered to their respective owners?

Atlas can get killed in IST-JFK service, unless they can do a codeshare with a US airline, namely Delta, they won't be able to match the cooperation between DL and the codeshare with AA TK has.

JFK

Who said JFK? Not me..

Atlasjet is working on several ideas which include long haul markets from Turkey.
While A330s were initially considered, the A340 seems the most likely candidate with several used examples becoming available soon from both Airbus Asset Management and the big lessors such as ILFC.

If you are very perceptive you might have noticed THY make some recent moves in some markets to try to thwart Atlasjet aspirations.

Laxintl,
it wasn't you it was TK787 that mentioned that.

I still believe that there is not much money to be made in the US-Tr market until you get good connections. TK is doing a good job in the IST-NYC market. IST-ORD is doing well too. Both of these markets have increased frequency in the summer time that responds to the increased demand.

IST-IAD might do well. IST-LAX is a big strech that will require at least 3 aircraft to serve comfortably.

You can be assured that any Atlantic routes will be defended by all European airlines that serve the market and can connect you to IST or other parts of the region with a stop over in FRA/LHR/CDG/AMS.

The articles mention that a contract was signed with BBD for 10 aircraft, 3 CRJ900, 2 Dash 8-Q400 and 5 CSeries... but I have not seen any mentioning of it at BBD's website, and they usually post orders when contracts are signed, right?

Good to see more CRJ900s come into service. If both IzAir and AtlasJet start flying the CR9 then perhaps THY will go for it too... and maybe IzAir will launch the CRJ900X as a replacement for the 5 CSeries...?

The Styrian CR9 is to be delivered in April or June 2006, IIRC... I have never heard of Donbassaero, where do they fly from?



Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

Things are heating up in Izmir before the summer season:

http://sunexpress.com.tr/news/new-iz...with-sunexpress_100135_100508.html

Sun Express starting flights out of Izmir (March 26) before IzAir.
Domestic: Adana, Antalya, Trabzon, Diyarbakir, Van
Int: Berlin, Frankfurt, Hannover, Cologne, Munich, Stuttgart, Athens, London, Vienna, Zurich.

This will be interesting. I don't think Izmir has the demand to keep both Sun Express and Izair profitable. Good for the public on the other hand.

While they are getting 3 ex-Independence Air A319s, can say pretty reliably that all 3 are still in Lake Charles, and with any luck today, will be able to show that to still be the case...

A340Spotter,
I don't get it. You are saying that this won't happen?
Thanks

No, I am just saying that those 3 are still in Lake Charles, that's all. The first one was just painted there this past week, and I am planning to go over there in a couple of hours to check...

TK787 et al,

N809BR and N810BR are both fully painted in Izair colors and will become TC-IZM and -IZR respectively. I took photos of N809BR but can't upload them just yet per an agreement with the customer. If you would like to see them, contact me directly. Nice colors, orange and blue, a bit off from what the Landor colors show in the link above.
