Oh dear springs to mind.  

Will certainly be interesting - and funny - to see how/if it develops.

Is it actually meant to be a UK-based carrier? If so, it really ought to work on its English.

Its website barely functions - including its booking facility.

I have a serious feeling that this will be a fails-to-operate carrier.

Can't seem to find out much from their website. Most pages seem to be under construction. Cannot find anthing about routes and timetables and when I tried a mock booking for various dates it came out as no flights available.

Would be nice to know a bit more about this airline!!



The best way forwards is upwards!

This might be the airline that was being talked about a month or two back,about new airline operating from EMA.
If it goes ahead.im sure it will be a big hit,due to the substantial asian population,in and around Notts,Leics and Derby.

judging by the edited United 767 as the logo, I would guess this is nothing more than a school project. It doesnt feel like a real airline for some reason...

I think Air Tigra was who they were on about.

It would be nice to think it will be a starter but who knows

I am surprised EMA haven't made a bigger deal of this though.

Manchester Airports Group seemed to have learned from past bitter experience not to make too much of any new route announcement until the plane touches down, then leaves again on a regular basis, with fare-paying passengers!

I'll give this one about 30% chance.
