Posted by Brian Mason on 03/22/17

To mark this event we will get a new award in VA Central for this accomplishment so please feel free to give yourself's a pat on the back for a job well done.

Time for Change

Posted by Brian Mason on 01/23/17

Good Day All

As you know we currently have a large number of spare aircraft based in India at both VIDP & VOBLwell after much thought I've decided to relocate some of these to our UK hubs.

For starters 2 Airbus A320's will be based at Stansted, these will replace the Two 737-700's G-CEMA & G-CEMB.

The fate of the mentioned aircraft is undetermined at this time.

There will also be a 737-900-ER VT-CHR which will be relocated to Luton this will be an additional aircraft.

As for Express India I would like to introduce a new aircraft type, The Airbus A321-200 which in time could replace the current A320' s based at both airport.

Another thought I have had will be to do away with some of our operational airline's

One of which is Heavy Lift this could just as easily be incorporated into the cargo division.

If you wish to comment on this particular subject please feel free to post in the forum or if you have any idea's of your own.

Stratos has acquired a Dash8-Q400 and has been refurbished and reregistered and now sports a fresh new colour, specially for the Caribbean. the aircraft fly out of Barbados and Jamaica, most of the routes are less than 1 hour but some around 2 hours. I hope you enjoy flying this aircraft into some amazing airports on the islands. Bill.
