JAT To Increase Flights!

Wed Dec 06, 2000 10:47 pm

Hi everybody!
In last edition of Flight International I read that JAT is in talks over alliance issues, with major Balkan airlines. talks are in first phase, and are still far away from agreement, and they also need govn approvals.
But more interesting is that as of spring, JAT plans to put 25-26 aircraft in operation (out of total 30) and to increase not only number of frequencies, but also number of destinations, due to significant increase in demand for travelling to Yugoslavia.
Thats all

That is all nice. But, out of all of their aircrafts, only some 9 are operational. Some are leased in Africa and I'm not sure if they are hush kitted for European operations. The rest of the fleet is grounded and too old, too expansive to be repaired.

The strangest of all is - why allinces with Balkan airlines? Shouldn't they be competitors, having somewhat similar market?

Hi All,
They did have a programe for modernising and upgrading their aircraft particularly the DC9's just before the war in kosovo, including a cabin upgrade and i believe hushkitting. The 737-300's comply with all european law's allthough some are leased out.
