Hi to you all! Sorry if discussed before, but the search didn't turned up any results...  Sad

I checked Swedish tour-company http://www.detur.se and to my surprise they are offering NORDIC AIRWAYS B757-300 flights to exotic destinations; e.g. Phuket, Goa, Hurghada etc.! In the moment, Nordic Leisure is only operating one SAAB SF340 and 3 MD80's. I tried to book Phuket and the following showed up:

STOCKHOLM ARLANDA 28 okt 2007 22:00 till PHUKET 18:30 +1 KK973
PHUKET 05 nov 2007 19:30 till STOCKHOLM ARLANDA 04:30 +1 KK974

The flight-code KK stands for ATLASJET TURKEY... So what the hell is going on???  Wow!

Is Nordic Airways leasing a B757 of Atlasjet? Is KK operating/leasing any B757-300 soon? why are the flights operated under Atlasjet's KK-code and not Nordic Airways 6N-code? and will it be possible (traffic rights), that a Turkish company (non EU-Country) is flying between an EU-member state and a 3rd Country?  Confused

Any memeber of our Turkish and Swedish community with any answer?  Wink

I checked today back on detur.de and found this: (sorry, Swedish only!)

Atlasjet Airlines
Atlasjet Airlines är ett turkiskt flygbolag som grundades år 2001 och som flyger till Thailand, Indien och Egypten. Till Turkiet flyger man med Airbus 320 med plats för 174 passagerare och Boeing 757-200 med plats för 212 passagerare.


I thought Nordic Airways would have chartered a B757-300... Is it possible for a Turkish company to fly non-stop between Stockholm and Asia (traffic rights)?

I don't know about rights, but the 757's range will definitely not be enough to fly from ARN to HKT nonstop.

Sorry, my Swedish is not the best...

Routing will be Stockholm - UAE - Phuket!
OBS! mellanlandning sker i Förenade Arab Emiraten på ut- och hemresan.

Damn... Sweden is getting HOT this winter! Atlasjet to Goa/Phuket, Primera Air B767-300ER To Kerala/phuket etc., NOVAIR to GOA via Baku on A321 and Phuket on A330, myTravel A330 to Phuket and TUIfly NORDIC with B747-400!!!! to Thailand etc.  Wow!  Wow!  Wow!

Well, some years ago, there was an article about KK in a German aviation magazine and IIRC they said some of their aircraft are operated from Thailand, with the LTU line MX station in BKK providing technical support to the aircraft (757).


Exceptions confirm the rule.

Yeap, thats true... the airline was called "Thaijet"; but went bankrupt. I doubt they will re-start service...  Sad

The Novair A330 is reported to be operated by Orbest (Portugal), as Novair don't have any A330s of their own anymore.

TUIfly Nordic B744 probably leased from Corsair again, exactly as winter 2006/2007.

I also believe that UKZ will be doing flights on behalf of a tour operator in Denmark CPH-HKT routing once the 763 arrives from Zoom Canada.

Just a brief up-date...

The timetable now vanished.  Wow!
Detur is showing the same time on their offers, but if you book, the flights times just vanished to "unknown"...

The B757-300 will be leased from Thomas Cook UK and re-configuered with 265Y seats instead of Y280 (Thomas Cook Germany/CONDOR is operating the B757-300 with only Y252 seats!). Here is a Swedish-only article:
