A small independent UK airline that operates charter and a handful of scheduled services with 737s and 757s.

There are often mentioned on this website as Bruce Dickinson, singer for the legendary heavy metal band Iron Maiden, is one of their 757 pilots.

Quoting Flying-Tiger (Thread starter):

Yes, they will place an Airbus order;

The company operates a fleet of 737 and 757 aircraft from ILFC, Gecas and Awas, and plans to order Airbus aircraft in April.

"We are quite excited about the A320s," says Monnery. "The industry order book is extending beyond five or six years and anyone ordering new aircraft from the manufacturers is speculating. We want to lease aircraft to airlines that are waiting for new aircraft to be delivered in five years' time."

Monnery adds: "An oversupply and the softening of lease rates are positive developments. Listed lessors are building value in future portfolios. They have big order books and as long as aircraft demand stays up, leasing will continue to be a good business."

Bit of a change in their strategy too

So it isn't Astraeus that are actually going to be operating them but leasing them out to other airlines

Yes. All scheduled and charter flights (bar a few ad-hoc charters) are meant to be ending
