Start-Ups Sundair to receive two additional A319 aircraft
German Start-Up carrier Sundair has announced, that the airline plans to welcome two new Airbus A319 aircraft to its fleet in the coming weeks.
For the beginning of the summer flight schedule 2019, the carrier plans to increase its capacity. With the additional aircraft, Sundair hopes to satisfy the passenger demand on leisure routes from Germany.
The carrier will take over two Airbus A319-111 aircraft. Both airframes are being brought in over the course of a lease agreement with company BBAM. The agreement is valid for 4 years. Currently, the two aircraft are operating flights for Sky Airline.
According to Sundair, the first A319 will enter maintenance at the end of January for a scheduled check. Then, the aircraft will be delivered to Sundair in March 2019. A month later, the second A319 will join the increasing fleet of the carrier.
Where the aircraft are being stationed is yet to be announced by the airline. Currently, Sundair operates flights mainly from Kassel-Calden and Berlin-Schönefeld.
In November 2018, Sundair announced that it has bought two A320-214 aircraft in order to boost its capacity. D-ASGK and D-ASMR were implemented into the fleet back in August and November, being stationed at low-cost airport Berlin-Schönefeld.
When all aircraft have joined the fleet, Sundair could be operational with six Airbus aircraft. At the moment, four A320-214 operating flights out of Germany. This shows the rapid growth of the carrier. Sundair was founded in 2017, shortly before Air Berlin went bankrupt.
Air Berlin´s bankruptcy was a well-taken chance for Sundair to take over slots and previous Air Berlin aircraft. Like Air Berlin, Sundair also offers flights from Germany to popular holiday destinations throughout Europe. Unlike other German carrier, Sundair is positively growing its business. Recently, competitor airline Germania had to announce that it struggles with the finances.
