Hi guys,

The name is Vipair and according to their website, they hope to fly 2 A310-300s to the following destinations from Amsterdam this August:

LAS PALMAS
MALAGA
TEL AVIV
VIENNA
TENERIFE

The a/c will be seat 220 passengers in a two class configuration of 20 J and 200 Y.

This other information is on their website:

Are they a virtual airline or are they really planning to start in August?
I certainly like their proposed livery!

Thanks!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

this airline says it will startup soon for the last 2 and a half years.

their livery is 100% stolen. i.e. from the other vipair (pictures can be found on a.net)

changes of start up are small to zero.

I've heard very interesting stories from a reliable source, which unfortuntaely I can't tell here.
There were very real plans to start about 1.5 to 2 years ago, and they were actually recruting people at other airlines, and collecting information needed to operate. Well, as with many projects, things didn't quite work out.
Right now I'm not giving them any chance of starting up, ever.
