Iberia, Operated By Audeli

Tue Jan 24, 2006 7:35 am

Hi all

I might have to fly MAD-LHR in August, and when I searched for flights on Iberia, one of the flights showed up as this:

Boeing 757-200
Cockpit Crew: Audeli
Cabin Crew: Iberia
Operated By: Audeli

Upon some research, Audeli doesn't even fly any B757s, so I was wondering if anyone could clarify what exactly this means... who is Audeli??

Audeli is a part of the Gestair Group (Spanish company in the aero taxi business which also lease aircraft for some airlines). Iberia is handing over to them their 757s and then they're leasing them back, with Audeli's cockpit crew. A wet lease.

Basically you'll be flying one of the "normal" IB 757s with a different flightcrew due to the change of owner.
