Blue Sky Airways, Botswana

Anyone have any info on this airline? Are they just doing charters or are they planning on getting into the scheduled flights business? And only a single 732?


thx in advance

From the Ngami Times

'It was a red letter day for Maun aviation when a Boeing 737-200 of new airline Blue Sky Aviation landed here on a proving flight on behalf of the Civil Aviation Authority of Botswana (CAAB).

Then there were red faces as well . . . because the plane reportedly did not have airstairs to allow disembarkation, so the crew had no choice but to return to Gaborone without stepping on to the hallowed soil of Maun.

Talk about oops! if this is all true.

The Boeing 737 that we have seen landing here in recent days is on a three-month contract for Air Botswana from South African charter airline Starair – and it does have airstairs.

Starair also operates on behalf of Air Malawi between Johannesburg and Lilongwe as well as undertaking flights for the Mozambique national carrier, LAM.

Blue Sky is awaiting the go-ahead to operate scheduled services within Botswana and possibly to other southern African destinations. Incidentally, Shuffle hears that the arrival of the Starair Boeing is like a homecoming for the company's P.A who in his younger days used to fly Cessna 210s out of Maun.'

I can hear rumours that Blue Sky Airways will finally get permission and operate many new routes. Anyone knows where i could send a cv?
