Smartlynx has sent over 5 sets of crew, both cabin and cockpit, to operate the two planes on behalf of Titan. I was told Titan where going to look to place one cabin crew member on each flight if possible.

Looks to me like the CAA are using Titan's AOC to run their temporary airline?

Itís not a temporary airline. They are flights operated by the individual airlines. Some using ZT/AWC flight numbers as the CAA have given them a contract to repatriate passengers. Air Europa did a flight from Lanzarote last night on their own AOC. Malaysia Airlines are using their own AOC for the flights their operating at Manchester.

I think there's at least 1 flying for Olympus that is.

Air India from Stansted Nov 2019

Hi all, in light of the sad news regarding Thomas Cook, I have come across this link suggesting Air India are to start flights from November 2019.
I am not sure of the validity of the report but just sharing.
Link - times of india

Air India

Just looked at their website and Stansted is currently not loaded. Also looked at Heathrow to Amritsar and no direct flights are loaded their. IMHO Iíd find it unlikely to happen in November as with no flights loaded. The initial couldnít be full. But crazier things have happened in aviation. Say that Ural still havenít loaded their flights to their website.

I have been hearing rumours at work that Stansted was looking at securing direct flights to India, but what I had heard it was likely to be Indigo or Flypop (If they actually start)

Air India.

Seems very short notice to be starting a new route.
Brilliant news for Stansted, However no official news from Air India nor Stansted Airport as yet.

Regarding Flypop, I also had, Have doubts although, I believe they have offices up and running in Enterprise House and that canít be cheap.

Fantastic news if it does come to fruition, and a nice addition to STN's portfolio. STN and MAG have really been pushing hard for long haul as of late, so am hopeful that we'll see the carrier come to the airport. Yet I cant help but be surprised of Air India's sudden interest in STN- surely if they were looking to expand their presence in London, they would seek to acquire additional slots at LGW first (and with the recent demise of TCX, this may only make the case more likely with additional slots now available). I guess there must be a strong catchment area for AI to support a STN service.

Air India

Either STN or LGW would mainly be relying on O&D traffic as their are limited codeshare/connecting flights at either. STN has SK to CPH and LGW has a couple other Star Alliance TAP and Croatian.
Must say when ever I see arriving and departing passengers on the Emirates flights there are always passengers flying to or from India via Dubai. Plus their is a large population of Indians within north London.

Reservation for this flight now open on third party sites. It appears not all flights have been loaded yet.
