Air Blue have changed their refuelling stop to Trabzon in Northeastern Turkey with immediate effect for the Islamabad-Manchester service, Ankara was not working out and almost all flights from there to MAN were delayed.

ED have also been granted permission to launch Jordan and Oman with services expected to start by Dec or Jan 2008. They also plan to add Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and full rights service Turkey in the future.

14 new aircraft are also to be added, the airline has recieved financial approval to buy eight A320 and two A332.

Intreresting that Islamabad-Trabzon-Manchester is actualy a shorter journey than Islamabad-Ankara-Manchester.

4011 mi as oposed to 4128 mi.

Any idea when the flights will be switched to non-stop with the larger A330s?

I wonder why ESB was not working?

For Trabzon wait till winter. Trabzon tends to get heavy fogs that can close airports for days in addition to snow.
