Roots Air Planes In YYZ

Tue Jul 17, 2001 7:11 am

Hi folks,
Just wondering - when in YYZ the other day, I saw a Roots Air A320 being tugged around near T3- any idea if somebody's taken over the lease yet?

I think it is still being used by SSV. Correct me if I am wrong.

Some of the 6J aircraft have been re-leased (the 333's), but I believe some of the 320's will be kept by SSV to expand their charter operations this winter. ALso, the 722 is, I think, being returned to Flightcraft.

C-GTDC (an A320) is now operated by pegasus airlines of Germany (possibly new registration).

LY744 is right. TDC & RAA are leased to Pegasus. RAR is still in YYZ and is being used on Ad-Hoc and regular SSV flights. The 727 is being retuned to Kelowna.

Hello all
Just a little info in regards to our 6J aircraft.
Raa is still buzzing around doing the odd sub charter for ssv. Been all over Canada, even up to the yukon. C-ftdc is back in our fleet in september under the ssv name. the 722 is still flying around and this month it is doing east coast flights for ssv, under the conquest travel company. 333's have been leased to an algeriean airline for 5 years. just spoke to one of the trainers for the airline and she just got back from europe training the flight attendants.

The 727 is flying around without any titles just the Roots colours...
