Air Mediterranean to be based in Pristina

NEWS FLASH


Greek charter carrier Air Mediterranean will base a Boeing 737-400 aircraft in Pristina and replace its counterpart Orange2Fly on all routes.

  2. So what happens to Orange to fly?
    Are they stopping flights to PRN completely?
    Are they shutting down or are they moving someplace else?

    1. They will stop PRN. They are just chartered by tour agencies to fly these routes. Now the tour agencies found a new partner for whatever reason.

    2. Airline with 2 B737-400 average age: 30 years,
      Orange2fly have 4 A320 average age: 15 years

    3. So they probably offered a lower bid and won the contract.
      Next airline to operate for the Pristina travel agency will be flying DC-9s...

    4. Between B737-400 of Air Mediterranean and downgrading to DC-9s stand Aviolet's entire fleet of 737-3H9.

    5. Hehe, there is no way Air Serbia can be avoided in any of the topics - of course in negative context.

      I am so glad they are the biggest airline in ex-Yu and that it bothers so many people here.

  5. Dodgy Airline registered in Greece with Lebanese capital.
    I can aready see them overselling tickets and leaving thousands stranded at different Airports!

    I'm surprised any normal Airport in Europe would allow them to land and takeoff on their runways.

    1. It appears that the last flight of the stored Air Mediterranean B737 was to BEG:

      Also, if MUC, DUS, or STR (normal enough airports for me) have no issues with landing and taking off from their runways, then I am not sure anyone in the Balkans is in a position to complain about them.

    2. Point is, a responsible Airport Authority does not simply simply hand out 1/5 of its entire bulk of passengers to an unheard Company with unknown owners!

      However, in Kosovo everything is possible. And no, Serbia or (ex Yugo states) are no role models!

  6. why they have to force people to fly with such unknown airlines...in case of ryanair,easyjet,wizzair, volotea,vueling,

    ReplyDelete
  7. Are there any news about Air Mediterannean? They should have started on Feb 06 to EAP Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, but Orange2fly is still flying. All three "aktive" Air Mediterranean B734 (SX-MAH, SX-MAI, SX-MAM) seem to have not been flown since days or weeks?

    1. I think with today there is no sight on that airlines based in Kosovo and it seems its going to be further so. So unstable and unserious airline for more stable touroperators (4 of them) they made a huge mistake signing a contract with them on a very serious market that is booming.

      Delete
    2. Sorry, Nor airline this Air Mediterranean nor those 4 tour operators are stable, but airport has numbers and facts are there WARNING be aware that they can easily bankrupt faster than what we saw in 2019.

    3. Just check in news what happened today in around Kosovo airspace
