Khalifa Airways To AMS

Mon Sep 09, 2002 4:13 pm

Hi!

Khalifa airways is supposed to inaugurate the first ALG-AMS today, if you guys in Schiphol have any news about the flight and what type of aircraft they have used, please let me know here...i'm not sure if this flight would happen cause i checked the AMS airport site and nothing about it!

thanx

Last Friday afternoon together with a friend I was at the spottersplace near Aalsmeer and saw a Khalifa Airways Cargo A300 departing from the AMS cargo tarmac. It then soon took off and flew away southwards.

Hi Lamyl_hhlco,

Do you mean passenger flights from Khaliffa Airways? If so than that's new to me too. Khaliffa Airways has been operating cargo flights to AMS for quite some time now, so those cargo flight are nothing new to AMS. I hope Khallifa Airways will start passenger flights to AMS, that would be nice addition for AMS. Varig is to start or has already started flights to AMS again via CDG, Ethiopean Airways now uses the 767-300ER to AMS, all good things for the aviation sector in AMS.

Regards A388

Yes, they are supposed to start a pax schedule from today monday, and twice a week with an A310. I knew about the cargo flight before.
That's why i want to know if they are really gonna start a schedule today if you guys over schiphol for the day.

thanx  Smile

Hi,

today there is no Khalifa flight listed on the computer system. It seems Khalifa has some problems with capacity. Will have to wait and see what happens.

regards,
Marcel
