Does anyone remember the airline Air Ops? They were around in the early 90s but I dont recall what actually happened to them. While I'm here, does anyone remember what happened to Aviaco from Spain?

Can anyone shed any light on what happened?

Here's a link from Wikipedia about Aviaco:

It seems like Aviaco was dissolved into Iberia.

Air Ops shut down in 1996, but didn't go bankrupt per this website...interesting.

Hope this helps!

Interesting reading, I thought that Aviaco might have been absorbed by another airline but wasnt sure which.

I'm still curious about Air Ops... I remember seeing the 3 tristars parked on the cargo apron at MAN for months and months!

Thanks for that.

While I'm here again... just as an aid to memory, am I right in thinking the following;

Airtours renamed My Travel
Air2000 renamed First Choice
Caledonian and Flying Colours merged to JMC then to Thomas Cook
Britannia taken over and renamed TUI?

Are there any more UK Charter airlines that have been renamed/merged that I've missed? I'm not particularly bothered about the ones that have just ceased/folded.

Thanks for any help  Smile
