Great Plains To Take More Planes

Sat Jun 29, 2002 5:45 pm

Great Plains Airlines is seeking a 61.5 million US$ loan guarantee to get financing for 10 new planes. As rumours say that they have just recently bought 4 328JET from Fairchild-Dornier I would guess that these 61.5 million US$ apply to only 6 planes. The average sum per plane of ~10 million US$ indicates that they want even more 328JETs. Anyone out there who can confirm this?

Great Plains has also gained certification as a Part145 Repair facility for the Do328. They currently will operate a Part121 and Part145 operation, will add the additional 4 aircraft and rumors they are buying aircraft from the Skyway fleet.

Never heard that Skyway is selling there 328 jets to Great Plains Airlines. Where did you get your info from? I work for Midwest Express and that is news too me.

My roommate is currently a Great Plains F/O and yes, their short term plans are for 4 more aircraft but no, they won't be Skyways airplanes.
My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

Having lived in OKC during their start up -- I've been able to follow them from the start. How has running a dual "hub" worked from them...comparing OKC to TUL? I know they are backed financially by the City of Tulsa...but I just seem to think it would be wiser to move everything to OKC and expand there. Bigger city and more room to expand soon with their new terminal.
