JAT Test Flight To YYZ

Thu Aug 22, 2002 1:11 am

Apparently yesterday (Aug. 20th) JAT commenced a test-flight to YYZ via Italy as a prelude to them starting charter service to YYZ. Does anyone have any more info about this? When will it be at YYZ? Has it already arrived? Has anyone seen it?

Thanks.

I haven't seen it myself and flytecomm.com doesn't show any arrivals. If anybody else knows of this flight, it would be great to see it.

Why via Italy? Aren't the planned BEL-YYZ flights nonstop?

Has the Cdn govt changed its stand on denying JAT landing rights in YYZ since the summer series was denied?

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Yes, the flight is supposed to be direct. Why the test flight is going via Italy I have no idea, I'm wondering that myself. The test flight is I believe one of the requirements they have to fulfill so that they get the licence they want.
