Airlines That Don't Fly A Or B

Thu May 10, 2012 10:23 pm

Following on from the airlines that only operate Airbus or Boeing thread. I propose a thread on airlines that operate none of either manufacturers aircraft.

To keep this from going down to very small airlines, can I propose that to qualify an airline should operate 10 aircraft.
And I am going to ban regional carriers for bigger airlines in the USA, like colgan for US Airways, etc.

I'll kick us of with a few from the UK.

Aurigny, Eastern Airlines, Flybe, Loganair, Manx 2

Elsewhere.

Aer Arran, CityJet, Dolomiti, EuroLOT, Portugalia

The best examples that I can think of from the Philippines are Sky Pasada and Mid-Sea Express, which are small carriers flying missionary routes which none of the major airlines (PR, 5J, 2P, Z2, DG, PQ) are inclined to serve.

Didn't they just retire that very recently? Within the past two months or so...

If wholly owned, but separate subsidiaries count like Portugalia (TAP) and Air Dolmiti (LH), then there are many examples in Europe with a 10+ non-A or B aircraft fleet.

Air Nostrum
Brit Air*
Airlinair
Chalair Aviation
Twin Jet
Régional Compagnie Aérienne Européenne*
bmi Regional (will be separate from BD-BA/IAG very shortly)
Eurowings*
Augsburg Airways
LH CItyLine*
KL Cityhopper*
Swiss European Airlines*
Tyrolean Airways*
BA CityFlyer*
Alitalia CityLiner*
Sun Air of Scandinavia
Golden Air
Skyways
Nextjet
LGW*
Flybe Nordic/Finncomm

*Owned by parent airline, but with their own separate operating license (and often a different product e.t.c). All the others are independently owned to my knowledge, but some operate on behalf of or in partnership with a mainline carrier.

Aurigny

That was the first airline that sprang to mind when I read the thread title! But sort of in connection with that is:

How about Cape Air?

Although they only have 9 active aircraft aircraft right now (the 10th, 1 of their 2 Dash 8s was seriously damaged in Greenland last year) Air Iceland (NY) have 6 F50s, 2 DHC8s (only 1 flying, mentioned above) and 2 DHC6 Twin Otter aircraft that operate from Akureyri (AEY), these 2 are owned by Norlandair but are in Air Iceland colours.
