Skyservice 757 To Be Fitted With Winglets

Sun Sep 30, 2007 4:34 pm

Skyservice Airlines will have one of there Boeing 757 aircraft (C-GMYH) fitted with winglets in November of this year. This is being done primarily so this A/C will be able to operate the YYZ-BEG and YYZ-ZAG nonstop next year without the tech stop in DUB. Great news, and its the first bit of news to come out of 5G since the airline was sold last month

Where is it going to be done? Any chance it will get done at Kelowna Flight Craft?
Keep the shinny side up!

They (Skyservice) didn't mention where, the only other piece of info I got is this A/C will be removed from the fleet for about 3-4 weeks to have this work done.

Talks should have been made with Skyservice for the YUL-TUN service starting in March 2008... instead of that unknown Northern Lights Airlines !!!

Quoting RicardoFG (Thread starter):
operate the YYZ-BEG and YYZ-ZAG nonstop next

Is Skyservice suspending these two ex-Yugoslav destinations during winter again, or will they continue to serve them as announced - scheduled, year round?

Who bought SkyService? I wasn't aware of that news. Does this take-over also mean more aircraft or new aircraft for 5G?

Skyservice Airlines Inc sold a majority interest in it's charter airline to Gibralt Capital Corporation, a private equity investment company. Skyservice Business Aviation Group, which handles corporate aircraft management and sales, business jet charter services, fixed base operations and an international air ambulance service, was not part of the sale to Gibralt. These parts of the business will continue to be owned and operated by Skyservice Investments Inc.
