Girjet? Isn't that the airline, which also operates a single F-100 for Spanair (for whatever reason, I found it always to be very curious that JK needs just this one F-100 as extra capacity)?

They also were the airline who had a 757 confiscated in Tchad some time ago,when French NGO's tried to fly out a group of children illegally to France,claiming they were without parents..

Actually GIRjet operated a total of three F100s for JK.

Can't remember where, but iirc, I read recently there was question over whether the airline was being used as a device for money laundering...

Weren't they also banned from flying into somewhere in Europe (Switzerland?) too for a while a couple of years ago.

Certainly one of their F100's was seized at MAN just before Christmas after arriving on a subcharter for Brussels AL - the aircraft subsequently was not returned to Girjet.

Remember seeing their first 757 in Dublin a couple of years ago where it seemed to stay for a fair while, during the summer season, with a technical problem that took a long time to fix.
I wondered how major the problem was and whether the time it took to fix was a resource issue (no manpower / parts) or a cash issue (no money to carry out the repairs) - since then I've wondered about the financial viability of the carrier.

Do you know who owns GirJet?

IIRC, they were planning to start services to Northern India from Italy sometime ago.



Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

Catalonian businessmen.

They used to operate the F100 equipment last year awaiting the purchase of extra Boeing 717 that were purchased from Olympic Airlines. When the 717's arrived to the JK fleet, the 100 fleet was returned to Girjet.

Was proved that the airline was not guilty. Only an airline wet-leased from a broker to transport children without the authorisation of their parents. One of the reasons to see actually this airline with it's AOC suspended is to had more than a month a 757 stored at NDJ.

Corendon of Turkey recently signed a contract for the upcoming summer season to use one of their 757s to add capacity on the Netherlands flights. Which airline will they now use to meet peak summer demand?

A388
