I read the following on Pprune.org but it didn't get much response there, so I thought I'd ask here.
"Does anyone know anything about a new start-up airline called Red Air, flying DC10-30 5X-ONE from LGW to LOS and EBB via BJL and FNA?
In particular, what is the history of the aircraft?"
LOS= Lagos, Nigeria
EBB= Entebbe, Uganda
BJL= Banjul, The Gambia
FNA= Freetown, Sierra Leone (I think)
So has anyone heard anything about this? If it's passengers they're obviously going for the VFR (visiting friends and relatives) market. Or is it a cargo idea? I assume it would be a UK based airline?
Given the current situation in the airline industry have they got a hope in Hell?!
Thanks for your info and opinions.
