Possible New Airline In South Africa?

I noticed on: http://www.skyliner-aviation.de/regdb.main?LC=nav4&page=3 that a 767-200ER has been registered as ZS-SOF to Aeronexus Corporation.

This aircraft is now sitting in Brazil as far as I can see.

A Google search for Aeronexus Corp turned up the following article that speculates that a new airline is on the horizon in South Africa (article dated 28 January).

http://www.aviationcentral.co.za/tag/aeronexus-corporate/

This follows the departure of Gavin Harrison and Sven Petersen from 1Time, and their purchase of Aeronexus Corp from 1Time in January of this year.

Is there a market for a 767 charter carrier in Southern Africa? Or is Aeronexus possibly trying to resurrect National?

The aircraft information from skyliner-aviation turns up an aircraft that was delivered to Avianca in 1990. There are no pictures of it in the database after 2008, nor are there photos of it in a C/S other than Avianca.


I'm tired of the A vs. B sniping. Neither make planes that shed wings randomly!

Well, Nationwide (not National   ) had one 767, that they used for a twice weekly service JNB-LGW. Since that link is no more, maybe they are considering ressurrecting the route? Will be difficult though, as the UK-SA market is already very full... AFAIK, the bilateral allows for 2 airlines from each country to operate. Currently, only BA, VS and SA are.

I believe CE made a lot from cargo on the JNB-LGW route.

If Aeronexus can get in quick on the DUR - LON route they might have a chance!

That would be awesome - especially if they make it STN at the LON end

They will be operating Djibouti-London on behalf of the Djibouti Government. This has been on the cards for quite a while now. Glad to see its finally coming together for them.

Yep, it looks like it's on behalf of another government in Africa - 1Time LINK. Sad, but commercial reality!
