Future For Planet Airways?

Tue Jan 25, 2005 5:49 am

Just read in an article that Planet Airways has completed being acquired by PHC Holdings and they are going to start applying for scheduled service. Anyone know where they will be based out of? Are they still going to be using the 727? Any rumored destinations?

Merci Beaucoup!

From their press release, dated today, available on Yahoo.

"In addition to the Boeing 727 aircraft currently operated by the Company, Planet has also begun the process of adding newer, next generation aircraft to its fleet. This modernization will enable Planet to expand market share as well as reduce operational costs, provide greater passenger loads, and expand its international presence with the extended flight range capability."

Best,

Bill

I know Planet has done a few US Marshall flights. It would be cool to fly on a 727 again! Hopefully they will keep them around for awhile.
