JMC Airlines is a British charter airline which has its main bases at Manchester and Gatwick. They also have bases around the country at airports such as Newcastle,Glasgow and Birmingham. They were formed when Flying Colours and Caledonian were merged together at the beginning of winter 99/00. They have a fleet of A320,B757 and DC10 aircraft. Currently they also have 757-300 a/c on order and are evaluating a replacement for the DC10. Their colours are green and white and if you look in the photos you will find some of the pictures of their a/c. I am not sure if they have a website.Hope this helps.

Thank you GKirk.
I happen to have some pictures of a couple of JMC 757s at Newcastle, but one of them had a completely white fuselage with the JMC logo on the green tail. It also had green engines. So I was wondering if it was the old or new colours.

JMC Airlines Ltd. is the subsiduary of JMC Holidays Ltd., a member of the Thomas Cook Group, the travel subsiduary of the TUI Group, one of the 2 aviation members of Preussag, the largest holiday company on Earth, which also owns the Thomson Travel Group and it's airline Britannia Airways, the world's largest holiday airline.
JMC Holidays was formed when TUI dedcided to merge SunWorld, Inspirations and the Charleston Group, and in-house airlines Flying Colours Airlines, Peach Air and Caledonian Airways respectively. JMC stands for James Maurice Cook, the son of Thomas Cook, and his work in providing a reliable travel service is reflected in the airline's bright and fresh image.
The airline has a fleet of 28 aircraft, these being 10 Airbus A-320s, 2 DC-10s and 16 Boeing 757s, though next year this will have increased as the airline has orders for a Boeing 757-300 to join the shaut/medium haul fleet, and a number of 767s to traverse the Atlantic to the Carribean and other exotic places.
The airline livery is easily identified. The belly is a pretty shade of sky blue, and the engines and tail are an attractive shade of yellow-green with the JMC logo on it in white.
If you want to visit JMC's websitle, folllow this link:

The airline flies from all over the UK and has a good reputation.
