There was a thread on this topic yesterday and I will say the same thing I said .
If this airline does fly good luck to them, but to me this is norhing more than a paper airline. Lots of hopes but lets actually see if they take off, it was not easy for Aeromar to get were it is today (and they are still operating a very modest network), Aero Santo Domingo is just spreading its wings now . Viva is not just planning to launch one airline but 2 and in diferrent countries - talk about ambitious.
Fly the Flag!!!!
