Just a correction to my reply above.

I am sure that SAS and Snowflake should have more success to Split and Zagreb, since Croatia Airlines does not fly to any Scandinavian destination. The same can be said for Sarajevo. Perhaps starting with 4 weekly flights to Zagreb is excessive. Nevertheless it is clear that SAS (Snowflake) is attem...Jump to post

I do not think the summer schedule is posted for all destinations as of this time. Kuwait and Tehran did not appear in the Amadeus online database when I tried finding direct flights with JAT from Belgrade. However I am sure they will be added sometime soon. A high-ranking Iranian delegation visited...Jump to post
Apparently JAT will fly the following connection:
Belgrade - Kuwait - Dubai - Kuwait - Belgrade
This will be an alternative route for Emirates-bound passengers traveling with JAT through the city of Beirut.
As i posted last week, they will also open weekly flights to Tehran.
Starting next season, JAT Airways will start regular service to Kuwait and Tehran. This is part of a new effort to focus on new markets in Asia. The airline already has regular service to Beirut, Damascus, Tel Aviv, and Dubai. Meanwhile, flights will be resumed to Sofia (part of the low-cost program...Jump to post
I am sure the packages are priced enough not to be out of reach for the wealthy.

Belgrade tour operators are organizing the travel packages to Varadero.

Glad that Tarom are getting more 737s. Are they by any chance withdrawing their 733s while the new planes are joining the fleet? Second question: does Tarom own their 733s or are they leased? Its a bit strange that Tarom configured the 737 for 116 seats, since usually those planes would be around 12...Jump to post
JAT have clearly opted to simply things. They are basically splitting the company in two components: medium and long range market versus regional. JAT Airways will take care of the medium and long range market, while its low-cost start-up, Intair Link, will concentrate on the regional market. Intair...Jump to post
About a week ago it was announced that JAT concluded negotiations on leasing two more Boeing 737-400s, in addition to the <acronym title="JUST (Japan)">YU</acronym>-AOO that has been flying for several months now. Both planes were produced in 1989, and will be leased to JAT for three years. The plan...Jump to post
With all the events that were recently unfolding in Bucharest, I was wondering whether anyone has more information regarding the Romanian government order of four Airbus 318s for Tarom, or the resignation of the general director? How did independent newspapers in Romania react to the news? ThanksJump to post
Flybynight, This is a question that i asked myself too. Other than Northwest, another airline that is replacing 727s before the DC9s is Jat Airways from Serbia. JAT took delivery of the DC9-32 between 1970 and 1973. Some of the planes were sold to Northwest last decade, with nine remaining in the fl...Jump to post
Air Canada is in more debt than some countries!!!!!!!
Why are they buying new jets?
To attain higher efficiency?
What a joke.
I can definately see why Air Canada is the airline many Canadians love to hate. Too bad Canadian Airlines no longer exists.

I would really like to know what people think of the future of the Boeing 717. What customers or potential customers did Boeing ask, when they were thinking of the 717 in the predevelopment phase?

Well not all is lost if the Romanian government did not sign on the dotted line in Toulouse or Paris.

This is upsetting how business is still done in Romania. I do not know how can the European Union praise the "near market economy," when the population is not properly informed of investments made with their tax money. Still no word on the A318 either. Perhaps it was not true to begin with? What a s...Jump to post
I personally like the restructuring plan, since it is very feasible. The company is definately striving for simplification, and operating one family of aircraft for its medium range flights definately makes sense. Other than its original nine Boeing 737-300s, Jat Airways also owns three ATR-72s. The...Jump to post
Good idea of making the new topic, since we had two conversations starting in one thread! Steph001, You asked if Jat Airways plans to fly intercontinental routes. In fact they are now flying to New York every thursday and sunday, since the middle of september. The agreement was reached with Uzbekist...Jump to post
Steph001, I definately agree with what you said. Malev and LOT have complicated things a bit too much. Malev show the intention of replacing the 737 classics with the newer generation aircraft, however this process is definately long term. It remains a question why they didnt acquire one particular ...Jump to post
With the withdrawal from New York, i do not see Tarom coming back to North America unless another airline decides to establish non-stop flights with Romania. In that case, Tarom may codeshare on the route, but nothing more.
It will be interesting how Malev react to these unfolding events.

I agree with most of what Mark and Steph wrote.

Mariner, When talking about the ATRs, i am extending to the dicussion of Tarom possibly replacing that aircraft type with ERJs or CRJs. As for the A318, the cost of purchasing one of those planes is about 40 million USD. Meanwhile the Boeing 717 is about 5 to 10 million USD cheaper. In the case of T...Jump to post
I remember we were discussing the possibility of the New York route being terminated, and unfortunately this was confirmed not long ago. If demand is not there, flying for prestige will not make you any money. With a population of over 20 million, i would assume Romania should be able to sustain a f...Jump to post
I am really dissapointed with this announcement coming from Tarom. Its an established fact that the Airbus 318 is an overpriced plane, and the only argument to purchase such a plane is cominality with the rest of the fleet, to support the low-yeilding routes that couldnt be flown by the A319 or A320...Jump to post

Since Switzerland is not in the European Union, what you states is a possibility, but i somehow doubt it. I think JAT will be getting another Boeing 737-400 soon. I posted the news about the new low cost carrier and the planned plane deliveries to JAT about two weeks ago.Jump to post
