Besides WN, Any Other Single Type Only Majors?

Mon Jun 04, 2001 7:03 am

How about it? Any operators with, let's say, 50 or more AC that only operate a single type?

I can't think of any here in the US...

Jetblue (A320)
I'm not sure if Airtran operates anymore 737 or DC-9's (717)

In a few years you can add AirTran and JetBlue to that list.

Jetblue now only has like 15 or so Airbus A320, but given a few years they will have 50 A320s.

AirTran flies a mix of 717, 737, and DC-9 aircraft, but by, I think, 2003 or 2004 they will be all 717.

Well, I didn't think there were.

But, we could add National to the list with their all 757 fleet.

Frontier isn't anymore since they took delivery of their first A319.
Vanguard used to be until the got the MD-80s.
Spirit could be considered since the MD-80s are aka DC-9-80 along side with their DC-9s.
JetBlue
AirTran (pre VJ merger was an all 737 operator)
Valujet was an all DC-9 family operator.
National
Access Air (rip)
Comair
Allegiant Air

Jet Airways of India (9W) had been an all Boeing 737 fleet with over 25 B737's of various types. Now they have 5 ATR72's as well to handle smaller sectors.

Their avg age of their fleet is just 4.5 years!

Those don't have as many as 50 aiplanes each but they operate only one type:

Cargolux: B747 Freighter only. They used to have CL-44's and DC-8's a long time ago but they don't have those anymore. They are based in Luxemburg.

Virgin Express: B737 only (300 and 400). I'm sure that if they order a new airplane, it'll be the Next Generation 737, likely the 737-700. They are based in Brussels.

VLM: Fokker 50 only. It's a Belgian commuter airline based in Antwerp. The Fokker 50 is the only aircraft they have ever operated.
