Apparently Cityline Hungary established a subsidiary in Switzerland.

http://www.citylineswiss.com/index.php

According to its website flights are planned from 2nd June from Angouleme Cognac in France to LGW, MRS, LYS using MD-80 equipment.

http://www.aeroport-angouleme-cognac.com/

Ryanair used to fly from STN to Angouleme but flights stopped in a usual row over fees and subsidies.

Cityline Hungary is operating a mixed fleet of AN-26 freighters and a B737-200QC. The later is the last B737-200 on pax flights in Europe besides Aviogenex. Last summer it operated charters out of Catania.

Would certainly be an interesting start up and equipment. Guess they would also hope on adhoc and charter business to keep the MD busy.

I would expect them to hear from the lawyers of swiss international airlines pretty soon given their choice of corporate identity & design.

Doesn't look that similar to me - it has their initials on it, or was that an in-acurate mock up?

Mind you, really, what a time to launch an airline!

Almost all Swiss airlines play around with the Swiss cross. Check Helvetic or Darwin, for example.

I give this new airline little chances of survivial. LYS or MRS looks more like a TwinJet Beech 1900 city pair, given that Angouleme is not evewn linked to the Air France hub at LYS. So filling 150 seats, even with some seats selling for 69 EUR, is not very realistic. Even LGW, depsite all those 2nd home owners, appears to be quite optimistic, but might work given the previous Ryanair service.

Quoting vfw614 (Reply 3):

Those airlines are all Swiss-based while this one is not and does not even fly to a single Swiss airport.

Using the Swiss cross for goods is regulated by a Swiss Federal law dating back to the 1930s, but not for services. It is quite complicated, but technically speaking, if Cityline Swiss as a subsidiary of Cityline Hungary is registered in some way in Switzerland, it should be no problem.

By the way, Cityline Hungary in that sense is not Hungarian at all as it is incorporated as a UK "Limited Company".
