African Star Airways 747-300s?

Tue Feb 27, 2001 2:14 am

As I heard, African Star Airways will start operations by the middle of this year but where do they get the 2 B747-300s from? The last ones which they wanted to buy from SIA are already sold to Air Atlanta Icelandic.
Does anybody know where they buy/lease this planes?

Hi Flumuc!
I dont think this airline will start-It has been starting
for the last 3 years.If it does-be wary of it!

I thought they already had them. It must be costing a lot to keep them on the ground not doing anything. And what happend to the TIE 743? Maybe they got one of them.

An ex SQ 747-300 sat in JNB for a few months about
a year ago and was gone when next I was there so
that must have fell through

Where does African Star propose to fly? Out of South Africa I presume? I've never heard of this startup. Thanks for any background info.
