Australian start-up SkyAirWorld hopes to begin Embraer 170 wet-lease operations for Solomon Airlines this week after a hitch in receiving its air operator's certificate. "The aircraft has to be certified [in Australia] so they have to do proving flights," says Solomon general manager of operations Napoleon Padabela. Meanwhile, Solomon has wet-leased a Boeing 737-200 from OzJet.
