Flyjet (who are apparently going to start with 3 B752s with bases at LGW and MAN) have applied to the UK CAA for a type A operators license and to operate charter flights between any two points within the terms of their AOC.
They're rumored to be aiming for a March start up.

I've heard of the same company, however, I've heard they are looking at CVT for their base, not MAN or LGW.

Hi there,
Anyone know who is behind this and is this just a rumour or is it a genuine application to the CAA.

Would be nice to know what sort of things they are planning to do and do they have a website.

Hope someone can help....(im after a job).

Many thx

Thx for the above info,

Does anyone know how far they are into the operation and who else is on the management team.
If my memory serves me right...Airworld did very well but not quite sure what happened to them...i think they were bought out or something or merged with someone else.

This might sound a bit of a silly question,but, if they have applied for the license and have an office allready and i suppose they have the correct funding...does this mean its looking very hopefull and that they are confident that they will be granted the license.

I hope so... hope someone can shed some more light about the above.

Many thx
