IB - AirNostrum To Lease 100-seater's

Tue Aug 16, 2005 2:14 am

Seems that Iberia's regional carrier YW has been given permission from IB to fly 100-seater jets.

As quoted by regional press http://servicios.eldiariomontanes.es...ntabria/200508/09/DMO-SUB-001.html
Air Nostrum will start operating the SDR-MAD route with 100 seats aircrafts (British Aerospace 146-300).

From the info in Iberia.com shedules, it seems air nostrum is getting a/c and pilots from WDL

Santander (SDR) - Barajas (MAD) AIRCRAFT OWNER WDL AVIATION
Santander (SDR) - Barajas (MAD) COCKPIT CREW WDL AVIATION
Santander (SDR) - Barajas (MAD) CABIN CREW AIR NOSTRUM
Santander (SDR) - Barajas (MAD) OPERATED BY AIR NOSTRUM
Santander (SDR) - Barajas (MAD) MEMBER OF ONEWORLD

Anybody knows anything else about this? like numbers of aircrafts, seat config (ib.com says there are business and coach classes, news for YW), routes to serve...

They are already wet-leasing two BAe 146s from WDL Aviation for a couple of months, one -200 and one -300 series aircraft. They were mainly used out of Bilbao and Valencia before.

The aircrafts was leased, as said Thomas Jaeger, two months ago to reforce the line SVQ-VLC. These two aircrafts will operate with the spanish airline until more CRJ will receive by the Valencia´s airline.

Many months ago, Air Nostrum planned to acquire CRJ700´s, EMB-170 or similar but this idea was put on the trash and was decided to acquire more CRJ 200´s.

The only thing I know is that there were already 2 BAE146s with the IB tail logo since a few weeks ago.
