737-200's In Europe

Tue Feb 05, 2002 10:09 pm

hi fellas,
which european airlines still use the good old first generation 737's...maybe some no frills operators (does RYANAIR still use some 737-200's), and what about the airlines in eastern europe, there were some with 737-200 (TRANSAERO...) years ago.
regards

Hi there,

European Aviation uses some B737-200, the same for Ryanair. Air Mediterranee from France uses 5, 1 with Air one and finally Air Sicilia uses 1 or 2 but I think these must be the only ones left in Europe.

Hope that helps.

Regards

Air Malta KM/AMC has two B737-200 Advanced in its fleet... I don't know if they are leased from Air New Zealand or not... ['lots' of connections with NZ for a such a small far away country... (a company from NZ has just bought 35% of Maltapost). Would love to fly Air New Zealand some day (ANY DAY!) this year or the next.

I read that the aircraft were sold and leased back by KM, I don't know who from though. I must admit that these two are my favourite a/c in KM's fleet.

Note that 732s will be banned from 1st April 2002 in Europe. Chapter 2 noise regs will kill them (and DC-9s).So enjoy the ride on them.

I know that Croatia Airlines sold one (or two?) 737-200's to Slovakia few years ago, when they changed the fleet into all-Airbus.
Don't know if it still flies...

All countries wishing to join the EU need to abide by EU rules prior to joining. It is therefore likely that KM will need to abide by these rules.

Air Slovakia still flies one. The original one from Croatian Airlines was repossessed by lessor in June 2000.

They now fly a new one from an undisclosed previous operator (I am being sarcastic here) on regular scheduled flights from BTS to LCA, KUW and TLV, plus numerous charters all over the place in the summer. They still have not changed this livery...

I know that KM's B732As have hush kits... but I am glad to read that the B732As 'have to' leave the KM fleet: I do not like their ultrasound-like noises and I also think that they do not look that good in KM livery (especially when compared to the Airbus aircraft).

AIR MALTA was due to take a decision about its new fleet composition by the end of March of this year, but in the post September 2001 world, I do not know how things are in this board-after-board-after-board-after-board-afte... airline [I was always given the same answer when I enquired about KM's future fleet to any of my several friends and relatives working at KM]. I hope that someone from KM might be able to enlighten us on this matter (future fleet composition at KM).

Maybe KM might just as well keep its present fleet, pressure the authorities for a fully-fledged airport in Gozo (GZM) and operate its fleet on this MLA-GZM-MLA run [Hey! I am only kidding, ok...!? I do not like the idea of another Kalkara or Maghtab in Gozo!!!].

That's all for now!

IMO KM's B732's are the best looking aircraft in the fleet. Of course KM livery is one of the best looking around and it makes any airplane look good - even an ATP.
Now about fleet planning. KM has been making fleet requirement studies as long as I can remember, but as BBADXB rightly pointed out KM's board changes faster than decisions are taken. Last year KM said that a decision will be taken by March this year. Then came 9/11. So my guess is a future fleet decision is on hold. The two remaining 732's are owned by Celcius aviation and leased back to KM. Regarding the NZ connection, KM sold 3 732's (9H-ABA/B & C) to NZ and leased one of them (ZK-NAH) back for two consecutive years. 9H-ABA was the first new KM aircraft in the fleet. It is now parked in DEN.

Xtristarx -- there are definately no 731s still operating in Europe. Although most of the 30 that were built started life with Lufthansa, I can't think of any European operator who has used them since LH retired them over 20 years ago.
I actually think there is only one 737-100 still flying in the world, and that is with the Mexican Air Force. Not 100% sure if this one is even still used - anyone know??

Aerosvit of Ukraine also operates the -200 but they are also being replaced this year with -500's to be common with UIA when the two companies merge later this year.
