I read that Turkmenistan was going to park it's 717 fleet and here's the proof. This is the second one to be parked

Seems strange that there was no hint of this or an announcement by the airline

Where did you read it?

Aerotransport.org shows EZ-A106 & EZ-A107 as stored at MZJ, but the remaining five as still active.

I guess even if Turkmenistan decided to ground their 717 fleet, we would hardly noticed as they are not the world´s greatest PR machine, don´t even have a website...
It would surprise me to be honest, as the 717s are still quite new and do a nice job on domestic flights. I flew on them a couple of times from Ashgabat and it was a super pleasant experience!

I wonder if these aircraft will be going to the new start up airline that was just announced in Europe. I cant remember what the name was, but they were the ones that picked up the 717's from Boeing.

Hmmm this domain used to be a 'cheap' site in German and English about the airline. Not much information and no booking options or flight schedules.

No, Volotea is getting most of the ex-YX/MX Click aircraft.

35 years of American Trans Air/ATA Airlines, 1973-2008. A great little airline that will not be soon forgotten.

Whoa! How long has that been there? My best friend flew this airline last summer and as of then we were pretty sure it didn't have a web site.

It looks like it even has an online booking function!
