Eaglexpress New 744 Operator

Sun Sep 16, 2012 4:27 am

The Malaysian charter airline plan to operate three 744s and three 744F as well, latter on ACMI basis, they will fly hajj and umra services to Jeddah, a bold livery is also on the cards according to their website flash banner, why it wasnt applied to the first 744 delivered makes you wonder if any will actually get that scheme http://www.eaglexpressair.com

They have one ex-Malaysia 744 sitting around in KUL (9M-MPD, 25701) and there seem to have been about five flights with it since August: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Eaglexpress/Boeing-747-4H6/2159125/L/

Any new 747 operator is welcome and I wish it success.

Quoting 777way (Thread starter):

The first one still carries largely the non-standard scheme the plane had since it was returned from the failed Saudi venture Alwafeer.

Has Al Wafeer stopped flying?

Thomas apparently they flew in February doing holiday charters from Korea.

From what I know they stopped operations, yes.
