Hello

On September 30 a new Swiss cargo airline will start operations at Basel airport. In the beginning, the airline that is called CATRAN will operate 2 MD-11F to Hong Kong, Seoul, Chicago and Johannesburg. Pilots will be former Swissair MD-11 captains.

That's great news for Basel.

I wonder if the MD-11 are also ex-Swissair or only the pilots.

...and great news for Switzerland! It's always nice to see new airlines starting up.

Nothing is mentioned about where they get their aircraft from.

Yet another cargo airline starts services to HKG! They just keep on coming don't they? This is good news for Hong Kong & for Switzerland as well.

Are the MD-11s from Swissair, considering the pilots are ex-Swissair Captains?

Maybe we should wait until they are really flyin'.... There are just too many "paper-airlines" lately....

....but of course I would also be happy to see them flying!!!!

Where are the MD11Fs coming from? I heard that this operation doesn't have its AOC, aircraft, funding etc yet...

Also, the MD11 is a very expensive (and too large) aircraft in the current market - DC10s would be a better option for them.

If it was true it would be great news, but I don't believe it until the first MD 11 took of. As somebody mentioned, almost every day there is a rumor about a new airline in Switzerland. Switzerland is not a big country.

Isn't there a BeCA plan to do the same thing (cargo, using MD11s) ex BRU?
