New Longhaul Carribean DC10 Airline?

Sun Jun 02, 2002 8:35 am


I was looking through the recent licence applications to the UK CAA and I came across the following under their 5th freedom section:

Name and status of applicant: Aerowings Inc
Name and nationality of airline: Aerowings Inc, Antigua
Number of flights: 2
Charterer: Aerowings Inc

31/05/2002 Trondheim-Edinburgh 11:30 UTC
02/06/2002 Edinburgh-Trondheim 14:30 UTC

Aircraft type, registration and capacity: DC-10-15/ V2-SKY/ 363

Permission was granted as no objections were received from UK airlines.

So if the flights went ahead the 1st has obviously happened and the 2nd is Sunday.

Who is Aerowings, and what are they doing with a DC-10 in the UK?!?!

Aerowings is the successor of Skyjet. They do lots of subcharters for other airlines with its DC-10s.
