Cobrex Trans is a licenced airline. Is HiSky a licenced airline, or are they just a travel agent chartering Cobrex Trans to do the flying for them, and using Cobrex's licence ?

So that will make them the 3rd carrier on BVA-KIV, competing with 9U and W6 competing. And then there is 5F from CDG. Is there really such a large community of Moldovan in Paris/North of France ?

So HiSky is a virtual airline?

Probably. No airline could launch in 2 months.

Exactly what I was thinking for DUB. They will be the third carrier to fly KIV-DUB. They are up against some stiff competition with FlyOne & Air Moldova.

Cobrex Trans is B737-300 operator, so where are those 2 A320 coming from?

I need to do LON to KIV at the end of October but neither these flights, the Air Moldova or the Wizzair ones are bookable yet. When might this be likely? I’d love to try either this new airline or Air Moldova...

It seems flights are already bookable on the website, up to October.

By the way, you can also try flyOne for this city pair. Flew them, and Air Moldova, last week and was a really nice flight.

According to the website they've added the A320 type. It's a bit vague (and maybe lost in translation) but I am reading that it's a relatively recent development.

Thanks! I noticed that FlyOne had become bookable for the dates I needed at the end of October so have decided to give them a go from SEN.

Is this the same Romanian travel company that announced the start-up in Romania called Animawings? (which Aegean Airlines has purchased a 25% stake in)

As I posted here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1438047

The Moldavian CAA is investigating into this (scam) for serious actions of violation of the law in force, identity theft, distortion of the reality by providing false information and deception. It doesn't hold any valid AOC, nor does Cobrex Trans hold any Moldovian traffic rights as Romanian registered company and so far no A320 have been spotted: https://www.caa.md/rom/news/item278/

What a surprise, first A320 ready for delivery:

First flight scheduled for July and (AFAIK), still no own AOC...Good luck!

I'm assuming it's one really old A320 being delivered and the leasing company must have demanded a LOT of cash as a deposit...

More than likely, it will be interesting to know just which 320 this is.

In terms of their chances, I give them six months at best.

FINALLY managed to spot an A220: HB-JBI at BHX :veryhappy:

I notice that HiSky has just signed up for a 2nd aircraft but as a company based in Moldova would be caught by the EU no-fly list. I'm aware there has been significant uncertainties about the airline in general

Anyone know what is happening with HiSky ?
