Air Engiadina/KLM Alps

Sun Feb 04, 2001 1:48 am


I heard the following Air Engiadina/KLM Alps news:

They will stop Geneva-Budapest and Geneva-Dublin flights from the start of the summer timetable (25th of March I think)

The will to sell 1 Dornier 328.

They will end the KLM Franchise agreement. All the planes will be painted in the original RQ (yellow) colours.

What do you think?

Kind Regards,

I think this is a good decision. Bad for GVA...but I like the old yellow livery much more then the KLM one.
What will the Austrian-KLM-Alps do?

Hi guys!

I´m Benjamin, and I´m flying for KLMalps/Air Alps Aviation in Austria!
And well, we have the same proplems like Air Engiadina!
We just stopped last week the flight from Innsbruck INN to Vienna VIE! And we stopped all flights out of Klagenfurt exept to Zurich. But we only fly it once a day, not two times anymore! But we will see!
Dornier took 2 of our Dornier (OE-LKA, OE-LKD) last thursday! I flew it to Oberpfaffenhofen OBI.
We try to get one back, so that we can continue to fly to Zurich, because that was a really good destination.

I will write again, but today I´m very tired, because I worked over 50 hours the last 3 days! All to save our base here in KLagenfurt.
If you have any question, just ask!

Sincerly, Benjamin!
yes i can handle that alone. - - -famous last words

I read in the "jetstream"-magazine that KLMalps has some financial problems.
They need high load factors on the Do328 to make money. I also read that they will continue to feed the KLM hub in Amsterdam.

Hope this helps,
