ContactAir: 4 Do328 on order, not sure about the date of order, but probably before they took CLHs F50s.

EuroCityLine: 1 Do328 (I think). Not sure about date of order, but how long has EuroCityLine been in business? Not very long... Must have been in 1995.

I didn't think that anybody remembers EuroCityLine  Wow! What kind of information do you need? I've got some information about their route network (especially about summer 1995, when STR was closed for all aircraft larger than ARJ, EuroCityLine did quite a lot of flights during these three months).

"normal" EuroCityLine flights, with MetroII (D-ICRK)
STR-RTM-STR started 02May 1995, twice daily (LP100/101 and LP106/107)
STR-MUC-STR started 22May 1995 daily (LP705/106)
STR-BLQ-STR started 22May1995 daily (LP202/203)


flights during STR runway works, with Regional Airlines SF340:
STR-HAJ-STR (LP505/506 and LP585/586)
STR-BUD-STR (LP800/801)
STR-LEJ-STR (LP901/902)
STR-BCN-STR (LP605/606)
STR-BRE-STR (LP350/351)

Hope this helps. In case you need more information about EuroCityLine, just ask.

Air Caledonie are the domestic airline in New Caledonia, a French colony in the South West Pacific. They operate 4 ATR42s and a Do228. Not to be confused with Air Caledonie International (who now trade as Aircalin), New Caledonia's international airline operating a 737-300 and an A310 (with two A330s and an A320 on order).

Never heard of Tahiti Conquest, but perhaps they are something to do with the failed Wan Air of Tahiti (part of the Wan (pronounced Van) Group who's main business is pearl farming).

Tahiti Conquest:
Founded in 1982 as "Carlosair", flying with Cessna 441 and later Beech 200 out of Papeete. In 1990 they got a Do228 (F-ODUN). In 1993 or 1994 they ordered the Do328 (probably as a Do228 replacement), which was due for delivery in 1995. However, jp airline-fleets 1996/1997 lists Tahiti Conquest only with one aircraft (the Cessna), i.e. they didn't take delivery of the 328 and they even returned their Do228. No idea what happened. jp airline fleets 97/98 says "suspended operations in 1996".

I have seen VIF Airwyas DO-328's props here at PNQ, but that was YEARS ago. Their counters at PNQ have been closed for ages now. Dont think they are operational.

Archana Airways was operating LET-410 eqpt to popular tourist destinations ex-DEL. AFAIK they had Dash-8400's on oreder, but ran into trouble with that one.
