Friedrichshafen, Southern Germany on Bodensee, lost Ryanair to Memmingen [closer to Munich] earlier in the year.

My Wings using a single MD80 will commence services to:

Prisitna - Kosovo - 11 August.

Greece - Thessaloniki - 14 August.

England - London Gatwick - 25 August.

Spain - Alicante - 29 August.

Italy - Rome, Ciampino - 18 September.

The website is: http://www.flymywings.com/.

They suggest more destinations to follow.

FDH is already served by home based Intersky [using Dash 8 aircraft] for domestic German flights to Berlin, Hamburg, Munster, Dusseldorf and Cologne.

Scheduled service to Austria - Vienna and Graz - is provided.

Summer holiday destinations are Nice, Naples, Calvi, Zadar, Split, Elba and Olbia.

Lufthansa offers service to Frankfurt.

Additional charter services are provided by other carriers.

Always nice to see a new carrier in Europe... all the best to them! Is their primary aim to offer a service to the catchment of FDH then?

They've hired a very good handling agent in ALC, they manage it to turn a MD-80 around in just five minutes:

Is that some sort of typo? Or could they realistically timetable that sort of turnaround in?

It must be a typo, the arrival time at ALC should read 08:50. Three hours is way too long for FDH-ALC. Two hours sounds a lot more realistic, as does 1:05 ground time.

Looking at the length of flight on the FYA121 services, it is 2 hrs 15 minutes - so the FYA 126 arrival should read 2 hrs 15 minutes after 06:50 - which is 09:05 - yes a typo of interchanging the 05 to 50!!

It is going to be an MD-87, being operated by either Pronair, Saicus Air, IMD Airways or Aerofan (sources vary on the question of operator).

Don't forget Iceland Express - one of those unusual nche services that seems to keep going despite on paper seeming like a very 'thin' route

With regards to the London operations,

178EUR rtn LGW-FDH on an airline hardly anyone in the UK will have heard of, or know about on a single MD80 with a flight that isn't daily and is in the middle of the day.

And no English version of their website?

Good luck guys!

One aircraft is asking for trouble, if it goes tech (and remember it's an MD80!) things could get interesting/expensive

Absolutely... sounds very risky! Out of interest, what is the overall reliability of the MD87 like (in comparison to, say 737 or 320series) ?

They say on their homepage e.g.FDH-LGW oneway from EUR 79

But every time I search, a oneway costs EUR 159

Only when I search for a return, single legs of the return show up with available prices from EUR 79 (or higher)

So their statement seems to be false. The 79 Euro fare is only available when you book a return.

Under which AOC do they operate? They use FYA flt numbers.


Aircraft are marginal costs with wings.

25.02.2009 - Saicus Air (FYA/Vitoria) is the new brand of flyAnt and is planning to resume operations later this spring with a single B737-400F freighter after the company has been sold to trucking company New Iberital.

So Saicus will fly its MD-87 for myWINGS.

The aircraft to be used is a single MD87 reg EC-KRV (MSN 49843), previously operated by Pronair but stored at IST since the collapse of the company (the second MD of Pronair is still stored at BCN). The aircraft was ferried on July 27 from IST to PMI.

The aircraft has been registered to Saicus Air, the new brand of FlyAnt (the cargo subsidiary of Futura) which was bought by New Iberital, a road cargo company in Spain, which operates 2 Boeing 737-3F to the Canary Islands.

Start an airline with a single MD87 and a tight schedule doesn't seem really promissing.

Good luck to them!

At the moment Saicus (ex Flyant) operate one B737-300F EC-KDJ which re-entered service on the 3rd of July 2010. They are hoping to have two MD-87's (ex Pronair) in operation.

The AOC is Flyant
