EuroAtlantic Airways confirma negociações para aquisição da Air Luxor

O Conselho de Administração da EuroAtlantic Airways confirmou notícias que circulam desde o início da semana de que a companhia de Tomaz Metello e do Grupo Pestana estariam a negociar a compra da Air Luxor.
Depois de haver conhecimento de que a EuroAtlantic teria chegado a acordo para venda de lugares nos voos do Brasil ao operador HiFly Holidays (Grupo Mirpuri) e de um bom encaminhamento quanto a uma futura cooperação nos contratos de fretamento de voos especiais, a administração da EAA confirmou esta tarde o «o interesse no princípio de avançar a muito curto prazo na aquisição da empresa Air Luxor, sujeita à confirmação de determinadas condições, que estão a ser analisadas».

Quick translation:

The admin board of EuroAtlantic Airways (MMZ) as confirmed news that the company is negociating the purchase of Air Luxor.
After the news that EuroAtlantic will sell places on its flights to Brazil to the HiFly Holidays operator (same group than LK, the Mirpuri group), and that a special cooperation will take place in charters, the admin board has confirmed the interest in advancing, in a very short timeframe, to the aquisition of Air Luxor, subject to certain conditions being analysed.

Well, we have known LK is not in a very good financial shape, so this is good news. Maybe we'll get to see the two A330s in MMZ colours... taht would be great.

Also, as a related news, MMZ will receive shortly two B757-200s. Great to see another portuguese airline expanding.

Hi,

I'm very happy for Euro Atlantic to expand. I wish them all the best.

Quoting Photolppt (Thread starter):

That's interesting. Do you know where these aircrafts would come from? And what do you mean by "shortly"?
In addition to the (current) 2x B767-300ER and 2x B737-300, that would make a nice fleet (not like other boring single-model LCC, you got me  Wink ).

Hi,

The aircraft are already available for ACMI and charters on their website, and they were rumored to arrive on the first week of February. We are talking about two B757-200ERs which will come from Atlas Jet in Turkey.

Their Fleet will be composed of the following:
1 L1015
2 B733
2 B757
5 B763

With the possible adittion of the two A330 from LK, not a very boring fleet.  Wink
Although MMZ is not so much a LCC, but specializes in charters and ACMI leasings for other companies.

Here's their website for more info: http://www.euroatlantic.pt/html/homepage.asp

Oh. That's now, isn't it? Please keep us informed.

OK, I assume these B752s would be sub-leased from AtlasJet, right? And do you know how long Euro Atlantic would lease these aircrafts for?

Yes I know that  Smile .

Do you tend to know what is the leasing agreement that Martinair has with Euro Atlantic regarding the B767-300ER (MSN 25535, Reg PH-MCJ, ex CS-TLM)? How long does Martinair want to keep this aircraft?

Thanks for your valuable infos.

Cheers!
