Start-Ups Air Mediterranean to resume operations
- Air Mediterranean
According to aviation media, Air Mediterranean has secured new funding to resume flight operations.
Greece's Air Mediterranean has been able to find new shareholders, to secure new funding for resuming scheduled flights. The carrier is likely to commence charter flights with three aircraft. Two of them will be operated out of Heraklion and one will be based in Larnaca. The Boeing 737-400 is configured with 168 seats in a single class configuration.
Additional two aircraft are expected to join the fleet in Summer 2018, when flight ops are likely to be resumed. According to media, a new schedule will be announced soon as well.
The airline temporarily ceased its flight operations in February 2018, due to disagreements between the airline´s shareholders. Air Mediterranean had plans to establish a hub at Athens, to enable connections between European and Middle East destinations. As it seems, the carrier has laid these plans to rest, as its focus shifts towards operations from Heraklion and Larnaca.
Air Mediterranean is a Greek charter airline and received its AOC in January 2017. Its fleet consists of currently two Boeing 737-400 aircraft with an average age of 28 years. The carrier is still headquartered in Athens, Greece.
