Flybe to wet lease 4 Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 to Olympic Air

Last updated 17/6/2009 20:50

Flybe has agreed with Olympic Air to provide 4 Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 in the form of wet lease (aircrafts with pilots, cabin crew and engineering support) for the start up period of August 2009 until September 2010. The aircraft will be based in Athens and will operate under the Flybe's AOC. They are expected to return to Flybe at the end of the lease period.
The Flybe press release is as follows:

Press Information: June 17th 2009

FLYBE TIE-UP WITH OLYMPIC AIR ON REGIONAL FLIGHTS

Flybe, Europe’s largest and most successful regional airline, is delighted and proud to announce its support for the summer start-up of Greek airline, Olympic Air.

By providing Olympic Air with four Bombardier Q400 aircraft, with pilots, cabin crew and engineering support, the deal is yet more evidence of Flybe’s growing reputation as a quality provider of professional ‘turn-key’ solutions in the global aviation market.

The ‘wet lease’ arrangement is from August 2009 until September 2010, at which point, the aircraft will return to Flybe. Based in Athens, the aircraft will become part of the New Olympic business and, operating under the Flybe Airline Operating Certificate (AOC), will be fully crewed by Flybe pilots and cabin crew and maintained by Flybe engineers.

The deal, which was officially announced at the prestigious Paris Air Show is the latest in a line of innovations which have highlighted Flybe’s ability to not only ride out the recession but place it in a position where it will emerge stronger and more competitive when the upturn arrives.

In what is a major extension of the Flybe brand, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jim French says: “The partnership with Olympic Air is an exciting development for Flybe. Following on from our Air Transport World Regional Airline of the Year award, this is a major extension of the Flybe brand and is a very important milestone in Flybe’s development.”

He adds: “The Flybe business model has been a great success over the last eight years and as a result I am proud that we will be one of the very few airlines likely to
announce a profit for the 2008-09 financial year.

“Over the past 18 months or so, Flybe has been offered literally dozens of opportunities to start up or support start-ups globally all of which, until this one, we have declined. Flybe’s senior management team is 100% convinced that this partnership with Olympic Air is a tremendous opportunity and dovetails perfectly with our brand. We look forward to it being a great success.”


Update 17/6/2009
It is yet unknown exactly which Flybe Dash 8 Q400s will be ferried to ATH but it is confirmed that all four of them will be re-branded with the Olympic Air logos etc.

List of Boeing 747s in Athens Airport (ATH/LGAV)

Last updated 26/9/2010 13:45

Here is a list with most of the Boeing 747s that have ever landed at Athens International Airport "Eleftherios Venizelos" (LGAV/ATH) since it's opening on 29/3/2001. The columns are: Registration, Model, Company, Remarks, Photo.
If a "Photo needed" appears in the last column it means that we know this plane landed in ATH but we don't have photographic confirmation. If anyone has one, please read the "Help / Contribute" section below the list on how you can help us confirm that.
This list is not complete. There are certainly some Boeing 747s that are not in it for various reasons (arrival/departure late at night, noone to report their arrival etc). If you know that one (or more) are not in this list, please read the "Help / Contribute" section as well.
Special thanks to Alex for creating this list and collecting all that important historical data.
