New BHX Airline Asia Express Started Ops?

Tue Feb 04, 2003 8:10 am


Just had a 747 (probably European Air Charter) arrive at MAN as the "Asian Express 4139. Anyone know if this airline is now up and running unlike their website which appears to be not anymore!

Beg my pardon...there is this photo in the database which is a 747 leased to Air Asia and just found out their callsign is "Asian Express", but does make me wonder about what callsign will be allocated to the BHX airline.

You did say it was a 747 flying under that callsign...
so its that Air Asia one that EAC has leased out.

Asia express all on hold at the moment due to 'unforseen difficulties'- anyway 747 to FRU form BHX? runway not long enough for fully loaded 747... maybe in a few years when the extra bit is FINALLY added!
