Anyone Know Why This A310 Was In LHR?

Wed Jan 05, 2005 12:59 pm

Saw this A310 yesterday (4/1/05) at LHR parked at T2. Anyone have any idea what it was doing there ?. Never seen it in LHR before, or even heard of the airline for that matter.

According to their website, they are the largest privately owned charter air service in Egypt. Probably a charter either for a tour operator or to do with the Asian disaster, as the UK is not listed as one of their charter destinations.

Originally started as an aircraft maintainence company.
