A China Southern flight CZ2003 is scheduled to land in Djerba this afternoon coming from Guangzhou. The flight is to rescue Chinese previously living in Lybia and who fled to Tunisia.

During the past 4 days numerous Egyptair and Turkish... flights landed in Djerba which is somehow close to the borders with Lybia.

The airport was VERY busy on Saturday night. LOTS of aircraft, and LOTS of people trying to get out. It sounds like the refugee situation is getting even worse now.


TRY. It's all you have control over, and it's what God wants.

On 4 March the BBC reported that additionally the British, French and Spanish governments had all leased aircraft to carry refugees from Djerba to their home countries, primarilly Egypt. They showed a picture of refugees boarding what appeared to be a PK A310.

Two of the three British aircraft involved in this airlift were, apparently a 148 seat Titan 737 and a Thomas Cook 752.

DJE to CAI is 1,236 miles so these aircraft operating on this route should be able to make two or two and one half round trips a day.

It doesn't take that many aircraft because they operate short hops with tight turns all day long. Besides, the Egyptian revolt led to a drastic drop in passenger numbers for EgyptAir to a point that they were talking about grounding a third of their fleet not too long ago.

There was a news report on HR Info, a german news station, which made somehow fun in the German government which sent 3 ships which were able to rescue 450 people in total, while the vessel "Mubarak" right next to it was about the evacuate much more, not speaking about Egyptair and all the other carriers. Egypt - which has much more work in their own country at this time - is able to rescue so many of their citizens and would with no trouble have rescued the 450 people rescued by the German... But the German government needs some good publicty to show to their people at home since the minister of defence just dismissed...

Back to topic... Incredible logistics being made by two countries which are both still somehow in revolutionary turnaround (Tunisia - which has to take care of all the refugees - and Egypt -which assists their citizens in getting home). Egyptair has flown around 60000 passengers for a week or more now back to Egypt.

Very interesting to see what is leaving from Djerba tomorrow:
Air Arabia, Kenn Borek Air (what are they flying by the way, I thought they had only very old props), MSC, Nesma Airline, airberlin, Nouvelair, Orient Thai to Dhaka (!!) - I heard bangladesh authorities were not taking care of their citizens, so this is good news, Midwest Airlines, Vietnam Airlines...
Would be a spotters paradise if the situation wouldn't be so sad...
