Why Did Silkway Airlines Get Rid Of Their DC8s?

Fri Apr 07, 2006 6:12 pm

Good morning,

while doing some research about Silkway Airlines (the ones who operate a number of Ilyushin 76s and AN12 nowadays) I was wondering why they got rid of their DC8s? Did this not fit into their concept any longer? It appears their IL76s and AN12 really serve them well on the routes they fly but did the DC8 fly different routes?

Thanks for any info!
