It looks as if EZJet Air Service (flights operated by Swift Air) has ceased operations. They flew JFK-GEO, YYZ-GEO, JFK-POS, GEO-POS all operated by Swift Air B767s. They recently got approval to start service from MCO and MIA.

If i'm not mistaken, this isn't the first airline which contracted operations to Swift Air to recently go under. Something's awry here.
I can't put my thumb on it immediately, but I know there was another airline that went under that had operations handled by Swift.

Swift Air also caused Saipan Air to pull the plug on their service before even starting

It never ceases to amaze me that several start ups have tried and failed to succeed on JFK / MIA-GEO, dating back to Guy-American Airways in the 1980s.

If so many airlines have failed in this market, there is probably a compelling reason why!

Wow...I would be furious. Especially since I will have to hand a carrier some sizeable deposits soon and there is little recourse if assets are shielded.

You might be thinking of ATA, they operated DC-10 JFK-PRN-TIA service for Adriatic Eagle Air in 2007.



ATA - an honestly different airline.

all operated by Swift Air B767s.

Maybe a little bit too much frame for these routes?

Didn't EZJet also use a Dynamic Airways B767-200 when they initially stated service?

Doesn't Dynamic still have some US DOD contracts or have they suspended operations in general?

Yep, what with BW several times a day to GEO and DL. EZjet's model seemed flawed from the beginning, price wars with the big guns. In addition, their founder was in a civil suit with his employers, and now it is reported that he is a fugitive from the FBI for misappropriation of EZjet's funds.

Dynamic is still around as Dynamic Aviation doing US DOD contracts with Dash 8's and Beechcraft King Airs. Dynamic Airways was a subsidiary of Dynamic Aviation that got into the ACMI business with contracts with Direct Air and EZJet.

Thanks a lot. So Dynamic Airways went bust and the two B767-200ERs are parked now?
