Air Madrid will get a first 145 shortly to boost their Barcelona hub.

News has been around for a while now. The ERJ's will be ex-Crossair aircraft. To my knowledge the ERJ's will be used on new routes to NCE and TLS.

Air Madrid has also taken delivery of another A330-300 recently, an ex-LTU and they will be taking delivery of another ex-Air France A340-300 soon.

Any idea when SE-RBG will leave the fleet?

I know it's not rated yet, but a Spainish carrier is looking at MAD and BCN to LCY.

At present I can't think of a spainish carrier with the equipment for this route.

The only rated jets are the 146/RJ family and the E135.

And it's toooo far for a F50 DH8 and the CRJ's are not rated.

Guessing it's Air Madrid, if you look on their site you can see that they are adding London.

Air Madrid are operating to LGW, not LCY, from the start of the winter schedule.

Do Air Nostrum have BAe146's? Would be perfect routes for them

I couldn't see the airport that they where flying into, that's why I assumed LCY. Thanks for the correction!

There seems to be a Valencia based start-up called OrionAir that will get two ex-Ansett BAe 146-300s, but no idea what they are planning to do, who is behind it etc.

You're welcome! And not flying into LCY (a very expensive airport to operate from) means Air Madrid is offering one way fares fully inclusive for about 45 Euro!
