Ariana Afghan A310

Mon Apr 04, 2005 11:29 pm

Hi!

The online-schedule has the information, that Ariana Afghan Airlines will start flying to MUC on 1.May with A310. The A310 will also be used to FRA, IST and ESB.

Does anybody have informations about this A310? Where does it come from? Previous owners? Delivery-date to Ariana?

I highly appreciate your help! Best regards,

Michael Fritz

They probably don't know the difference between A300 and A310!

No they make a definite distinction between the A310 and the A300B4 look at their schedule:

Also it would make sence if they have an A310 to fly it to Germany as these will have the range to do that without a stop in Baku or Istanbul.

@ unique

Thanks! Your post was definitely very helpful!

@ all

No one else with more info? If they plan to start flying with A 310 in less than four weeks it should at least be known where this A310 comes from!

Best regards,
Michael

So is this the end of the Air Luxor A330 operation?

@ Fly-K

I'm not sure, but it looks like that. I guess let's wait and see...  Wink

The 300s were a "gift" from Air India. Perhaps Ariana got hold of some of the 310s AI recently returned?

@ IndianGuy

No, the flights to MUC and FRA will be operated by Ariana aircraft, so if it is a codeshare at all, then someone else will get seats on the Ariana flights.

Anyway, the latest in three weeks we will all know which A310 they are actually using...
