Would be interesting to know who is backing them and who the investors are. The market is limited, FR is a base carrier there, HAJ and FMO are one to two hours "down the road", not speaking of Hamburg. .
E's passed on! That parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker!

From todays news on Radio Bremen: Die Fluglinie "Bremenfly.Com" hat ihr erstes Flugzeug in Empfang genommen. Die Boeing 737 mit 168 Sitzplätzen soll zum Sommerflugplan 2009 eingesetzt werden, teilte der Bremer Flughafen mit. Geplant sind demnach zahlreiche Kurz- und Mittelstreckenverbindungen. Vorgesehen ist zunächst der Einsatz von zwei Flugzeugen vom Typ "Boeing 737". Die Ansiedelung von "Bremenfly.Com" und der Betrieb der beiden Flugzeuge bedeute rund 70 neue Arbeitsplätze, so ein Sprecher des Flughafens.
First B737 has been delivered; 168 seats.
Scheduled to start operating with the summer schedule 2009 (would that be 29-MAR-2009 ? )
Numerous short- to mediumhaul destinations foreseen
A second B737 is planned to be operated.
70 jobs are to be created.
Like others have expressed:
There will be tough competition from FR at BRE, already having "occupied" most important destinations.
If they indeed plann on operating 2 B737 only out of BRE, it likely will get tough to secure enough pax (unless they are able to get a contract with one or more tour operators, for which it already might be too late in the contracting process for summer 2009).
What might be helpful for them (and FR) is the fact that X3 is cutting more and more destinations from HAJ.
HAM might be rather closeby, but given the current state of motorway A1, travelling the Hanselinie is a nightmare, which a) might keep more local pax at BRE, but b) also keeping pax from Hamburg from travelling all the way to BRE by car.
