  • Asian Spirit aims to double size of BAe 146 fleet and extend reach

    News | 17 Jan 2006 00:00

    <P>Philippine regional carrier Asian Spirit plans to launch international services using its BAe 146 fleet, which will double in size during 2006 despite the loss of an aircraft late last year.</P> <P>Asian Spirit says its first international route will connect the southern Philippine city of Davao with Palau in Micronesia from March. The carrier will use one of its two 83-seat 146-100s on the service, which will originate in Manila. Asian Spirit now mainly uses the regional jet to connect Manila with small island destinations, but it is looking at launching several international routes, including to greater China.</P> <P align=center><IMG alt="Asian Spirit" src="../assets/getAsset.aspx?ItemID=10998"></P> <P>Asian Spirit took delivery of its first 146 early last year and initially operated one -100 and one 100-seat -200. But industry sources say the -200 has been written off after the nose was damaged in November during landing at Catarman Island. </P> <P>Sources say the 146-200, ahttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Asian-Spirit-aims-to-double-size-of-BAe-146-fleet-and-extend-reach-204078/
  • Druk Air seeks to widen network and move to all-Airbus A319 fleet

    News | 24 May 2005 00:00

    <p>Bhutan's Druk Air is seeking traffic rights to expand its route network to Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore, while closing on the sale of its BAe 146s to standardise its fleet around the Airbus A319.</p> <p>Managing director Sangey Tenzing says the new services depend largely on a revised air services agreement being negotiated with India to give it further fifth freedom, or beyond, rights.</p> <p>The carrier's network currently covers flights on just two routes: Paro-Kolkata-Bangkok and Paro-Kathmandu-Delhi. Sangey says it hopes to operate the new services beyond Delhi or Kolkata, India. Hong Kong may be served via the Nepalese capital Kathmandu.</p> <p>"Early next year we are hoping to start the new routes," he says. "Our government is still negotiating the air services agreement [with India]. This is taking a long time, but we are hopeful."</p> <p>Druk is the only airline serving the reclusive Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, which effectively limits the number of foreign visitorshttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Druk-Air-seeks-to-widen-network-and-move-to-all-Airbus-A319-fleet-198313/
