Skyliner: LH Regional To Reorganize CRJ200/700 Ops

Fri Nov 09, 2007 7:46 pm

Skyliner magazine reports in its latest issue that Lufthansa Regional will reorganize its CRJ200 & CRJ700 operations. Allegedly, Contactair (currently operating ATR42/72) will take over Eurowings' CRJ200 fleet, while the latter will receive LH CityLine's CRJ700 fleet. Skyliner also reports that CityLine will at the same time replace the CRJ700s by CRJ1000s.

However, one should note that LH hasn't ordered that version yet, just 15 additional CRJ900s.

Apart from that, the Skyliner article suggests that Ausgburg Airways' role within Lufthansa Regional may be redefined - probably the small company may even leave the group.

How accurate is Skyliner ? So far most rumors I have read on Skyliner have never come true and as it seems this article above is also not very accurate (CRJ 10000), too.

The article may not be true this time - but I can't confirm that "most rumors have been untrue". Probably the CRJ900s on order are meant. The fleet swaps could indeed be true.

So an overall expansion of Lufthansa Regional is proposed?

That would leave Ausgburg Airways with no operations wouldn't it?

Apparently, Eurowings are also taking the two ex-Duo/AtlasJet CRJ700... I sa a pic of them on another aviation site. Wonder if they will take the ex-Styrian CR7 too, as well as the 2-3 other ex-Duo CR7?

no, there will be just those two additions.

Alliance Air (India) is the new recipient of the ex-Styrian aircraft and I believe of the two ex-Duo ones as well. Alliance Air will be leasing four CRJ700's.

Source: www.ch-aviation.ch/aircraft.php Just click on the CRJ700 fleet list and you will see that the ex-Styrian aircraft is now registered VT-RJB.

I'm glad that the Styrian CR7 has a new home. It was a great shame not to use a brand new aircraft like that. The interior looked great, and I believe the galley had ovens too for hot meal services...?

Also glad to hear that the ex-Duo CR7s are finding new homes. They didn't have too many cycles either, I'll bet.
