Adria begins Saab operations

NEWS FLASH


Adria Airways has begun scheduled flights with the fifty-seat Saab 2000 aircraft following several weeks of delays. The first of the six Saabs, registered S5-AFG, operated its first revenue service on behalf of the Slovenian carrier on Monday between Ljubljana and Bucharest. The second turboprop, registered S5-AFJ, entered into service yesterday, flying between Ljubljana and Dusseldorf. The aircraft were initially to commence operations on September 1. Adria has previously said it plans to use the regional turboprops on some of its own flights while others will be placed onto the ACMI lease market. One of the aircraft will be based at the airline's new Padeborn base from late October.

    1. To answer you directly. They (POW) have many restrictions. First of all in their head, than this is spread all over the tourism management in the area.
      SB20 has not many reestrictions but RWY performances when hot, heavy and wet rwy are behind the sense of making revenue with this aircraft.

    1. Yes! Seating on the left side with an oversized spreadsheet newspaper it feels like you're on a private jet.

    Looks like JP310 suffered technical issues shortly after takeoff and returned to LJU. JP311 was delayed over 4 hours as a result.

    2. JP became an operational mess, their product is unreliable, unpunctual and expensive. I hope their safety levels does go the same way.
