New Charter Destinations

Looks like Varadero, (Cuba), Cancun, Mexico, in addition to Punta Cana, in the Dominican republic.

I don´t think so.

Air Comet used to fly them to HAV from MAD and they used to have a stop in Nassau, and this route is 800NM shorter.

Airliner World had a small bit in the March issue, saying that they had broken their own distance record with the A310. Apparently it had done SAL-PRG nonstop, bypassing the usual fuel stop at Isla Margarita.

EDIT: Which is impressive, given that that routing apparently is 400km longer than the range of the A310-300 Big grin

I wouldn't thiink so, with all the charter companies in the UK, that would not seem likely, but you never know these days.

Flightaware shows the flight not stopping anywhere, Prague-Cancun, 11 hrs/20 mns. It does seem like to long a flight for an A310.... what's the range of that airplane, anybody know??

Because now is operated by A332 or A343 but when I was living in HAV they have a technical stop in Nassau, not always but sometimes (because winds).

4.350 NM and PRG-CUN is more than 4.800.

SAL-PRG (5.291NM) is much longer, but Westbound could be done because strong tailwinds but eastbound, just forger about it.......never ever.

CSA's PRG-CUN flights do indeed stop at MAN both ways, refuelling only


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Thax Gkirk, that makes more sense now, no way an A310 could do PRG-CUN......

Not always. If the winds are favourable then they will go non-stop. If not then they will stop. Haven't seen one around in a few weeks though. Most flights are operated by OK-YAC although one other A310 has passed through MAN.

I saw Air Comet deploying the 310 into MAD-SJO which is farther than MAD-HAV.
