Hola Airlines Fleet Expansion?

Thu Aug 04, 2005 4:11 am

Last I heard was hola were thinking of aquiring a 757 to offer additional capacity to operate alongside their 733s. They appeared to be picking up quite a bit of business, particularly from UK tour operators out of regional UK airports.

Any news on the airline?

I haven't seen or heard of them for quite a long time, so much that I thought they had turned their back on the UK. What routes are they operating to the UK?

btw, Hola Airlines was the name I thought of around 13 years ago, when I was thinking of naming an airline and holiday company.

Apparantly, Hola already do operate a B757 (this was news to me also!). EC-ISY (ex Iberia) has been in the fleet since Nov 2003.

Interesting livery, no titles, thought it may have been a hybrid but given it's nothing like it's previous operator's colour scheme, then I'm guessing this may be Hola's new livery? Shades of old Britannia I think!  Smile And a definate improvement on the livery on their 733's, the most unimaginative colour scheme (or lack of) in history!

Yes, I loved the name 'Hola airlines' but the livery dissapointed. A bright sunshine colour would be ideal for a charter airline operating to Sunny Spain.

To me, nothing said "Sunny Spain" more than Hispania's livery. Sadly missed.

I'm sure I read somewhere that they have recently returned one of their leased 737s.
I don't like signatures...

Hi,
The 757 they operate used to belong to IB, and still keeps the same seats and configuration, even the seat covers are still the same.
