Fri Jul 20, 2007 4:21 am

MAXjet approved for pax to transit through STN to go to Middle East.

Interesting!

Maxjet ready for multiple Gulf routes

Maxjet, an all business class airline that currently flies from London Stansted to New York and Washington, could launch new routes to India, Kuwait, the Maldives, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Singapore, Thailand and the UAE as early as March next year.

In a trading statement issued this week, the airline said it has received approval from the US Department of Transportation to operate non-stop services from the US to all open skies points.

The approval will allow Maxjet to open up several new routes to US destinations, and also includes the right for flights from the US to transit through London Stansted and onto open skies destinations in the Middle East and Asia.

Would not be surprised to see a few of these happen sooner rather then later. Nigeria and some Gulf States are likely as is new service to IAH and MIA within the next few years.

IAH/MIA-STN on MAXjet, you mean? I've heard MIA but not IAH.
