Slovakian charter operator Seagle Air is expecting to take delivery of two more Boeing 737 aircraft by the end of May, having already acquired its first example from Indonesia's Adam Air.

Seagle Air is based in Trencin and is a sister company to the business aircraft operator Seagle Jet, which performs charter flights with Cessna Citation executive jets. It moved into large-jet operations at the beginning of this year, having previously been associated with domestic services conducted using Let L410 aircraft.

The company has already put its first 737, a 21-year old aircraft registered OM-HLA, into service performing flights on behalf of Romanian low-fare operator Blue Air.

But a spokeswoman for Seagle Air says the carrier is expecting to take two more 737s - one at the end of April, and another by the end of May. She does not identify the source of the jets. "Next year we hope that the fleet will be even better, with five or six aircraft," she says.

Seagle Air, which is headed by Peter Hanak, says it has started the "transformation into a charter airline" and says the Blue Air operation is its "first major project". It adds that its activities will include wet-lease and ad hoc operations. The company is also associated with a maintenance business and flight school.
