I understand this is Excel using a Viking MD-83 at NEMA for this summer, but not branding it as Excel or Viking but as UK International Airlines. I presume to help get rid of the stigma casued by the MD83 Scandic / Viking farce last summer ?

Hasn't Excel cancelled the lease application for the Viking MD80, and instead gone for a Greek registered a/c? (SXBSW?)

This may weel be true, but I think VIKING are in the process of setting up a NEMA base and Excel are training crew dual on MD83 and B738.

I am yet to know about this UKIA as one of my friend told me that they advertised for all sorts of posts in a Manchester based Asian Channel called DM Digital

There was a post here with a link to an amaturish website featuring some cobbled together pictures of UN 767s (and one 777!!!) with "UKIA" photo-shopped onto the side.

I think some fantasies are being indulged here!!

UK International Air Lines

In that infamous monthly tome of spotter community, the latest issue of "Airliner World", it is suggested that "UK International Air Lines" have already have secured two ex-United 767-200ERs and are after another two, and will start to operate services later this year from LGW, MAN and EMA to Islamabad, Lahore and Sharjah, with their launch being from EMA.

Anyone know anymore???

There is an ad for a 767 "Captain" based Sheffield on an american job site but the advert was full of grammar errors, certainly enough to think it will be a non starter

AOC/Company registration? If not, then I think not.

Also dont think this is anything to the proposed start up Air Tigra that was mentioned a few months ago.

Any updates or inside info available????

UK International Airlines/Air Tigra

UK International Airlines is the proposed new name for what was first listed as Air Tigra. 2 X7 767's were being sought for operations from NEMA to Islamabad and other Pakistan destinations. There is also a main thrust to operate into SHJ and via SHJ etc.

Current HQ is in Sheffield at the Queensland Furniture Store in Queensland Road. Sheffield

Can anyone throw anymore light on the progress of their AOC application, Hiring of Crews etc etc or when they intend to start up as this operation was intended to start up a long time ago! Many people have been very critical of this company and how it goes about its business?
