Stratos Caribbean

Posted by Bill Kirkham on 08/19/16

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.

Good Day All

As you all know the Bournemouth hub has been set up to relive the early days of Channel Express using the aircraft of that time.

On reflectionSo I feel that maybe some of these old ones can be done away with, but we will keep the ones that are currently assigned to the flight schedules.

However we will now be moving Bournemouth back up to present day operations using the more modern aircraft currently at our disposal.

So we will be operating both Old and Modern together I think it will enhance the overall effect of the airport and hopefully will encourage more flights to be flown from there.


New Tour Added

Posted by Bill Kirkham on 06/30/16

We have just added a tour of European cities, you can choose what aircraft you want to fly, flight times are all less than 3 hours and Approximate times as it will vary pending on what you choose to fly.

We hope you enjoy this fun tour.
