Airline Name....

Mon Feb 18, 2002 8:21 am

hey all !!

i was wondering wether you guys, especially those with imaginative minds, could help me out...

for a university project, i have to set up an low cost airline within the european union... i have decided to set up operations linking the islands of the western mediterranean sea: Balearic, Corsica, Sardegna and Sicily.


Now i have to find a name for this airline...and i am utterly at a loss....i have been racking my brain for the last week and i cant find anything....


Please help me !!!

I appreciate all the help,

How about 'SeaGull' or something like that? Just try to be creative. Try to come up with a name that reminds people about flying, comfort and quality...

Other suggestion: MedJet

It might be really lame  Nuts , but I am pretty confident of my anonymous status around here...

SSBC Air?

S is for Sicily
S is for Sardegna
B is for Balearic
C is for Corsica

I know, I know...a bit of a rip off from B.O.A.C,
but hey, weren't they the glory days anyway?

Well, old days would call it the 'Tyrrhenum Sea' , so perhaps: AirTyrr ?

Oh heck, just use PSA. Bring the smile back!

Try to think of something that the region may be famous for..... or, something that's indigineous to the region. That could be your logo. Then, you could perhaps sculpture a name based on that.... and a colour scheme/livery, too.
I'm not familiar with the region so i can't be of more assistance. Although, TransMediterranean seems okay.
One word of caution: The Med abbreviation may lead some to wonder if there's a medical connection. Just a thought.

I like MedEx(press), or maybe even InterMed. So many possibilities!

I was going to do an airline for my Business project, but its far too complicated and so I am doing an ironing service. It is riveting. Not.

Hey people!!!! While I understand that you probably didn't know this, and that it is a good airline name for this region, Sunjet is the name of my VA. I would appreciate it if you would refrain from nominating the name on this thread. Thanks!

Why not call it after its founder:

AP Air

Another suggestion would be:

Seven Islands Air

Name it after the messenger of the Gods.

Mercury Airways

Ancient mythology is somewhat condusive to that geographic area. Additionaly, that you could be your slogan:

"Mercury, Messenger of the Gods"

I was going to suggest Palm Air Mediterranean... but it would sound like it comes from Palma (which it would be, but not representing the others)

Why not Napoleon Air ? (did he conquer Sardinia and Sicily?)

Air Mediteranee ?

For low cost... why not Mediterranean Express ! LOL

this may bug some swiss people but I am swiss and it doesn't bother me. How about Balair the Bal being for Balearic? Keep up the name?
Anyways. What class are you doing this for?
