RE: My XLA Flight Cancelled!

AviaJet / Dubrovnik Airlines MD83

Hi There,

I see that Aviajet has leased in a Dubrovnik Airlines MD83 for the summer. Was just wondering what the deal is with this, i didnt think Croatia was part of the EU. Can anyone tell me what the rulings are on this or provide a link on info to the above.

Woud a UK carrier be allowed to operate from the uk to europe with
a Tupolev 154 / 204.

Say a new UK start up wanted to go for these types, are they allowed on the "G Register" or can it be leased in with a EU reg instead, like Bulgarian Air or something.

Hope that makes sense
