With the current economic downturn having caused a massive fall off in aircargo, and oil prices well clear of the $40 a barrel low of recent memory, it won't be plain sailing.

Prehaps a good time to re-equip with more modern fuel effecient aircraft and position for the upturn, as long as they can ride out the present depressed market.

Good luck to them. NCA recently said the Ad Hoc market is where the profit is at the moment so maybe the beginning of the upturn will mean MK prospers/

But who is MK???

Does anyone know who MK actually belong to? Their directors are given as

Dr Abdullah Alanizi - Chairman
Mike Kruger - Managing Director
David Tattum - Director
Syed Rizvi - Director
Loay Jolag - Director/Company Secretary

Apart from Mike Kruger, does anyone know who these other guys are and their experience of running a UK charter airline?

What changes have they made to change their business model so they don't go bust again?

What did the creditors get out of the CVA?

Charterman give them a chance they have only been out of administration for 6 days & I am sure that the High Court & the Administration Company must be satisfied with their plans & new investment or they would not be here now.
Good Luck to them its just good to see someone in this industry with some good news for once.

"Prehaps a good time to re-equip with more modern fuel effecient aircraft. . . "
. . . as easy as going down the aisle of a supermarket and "adding to the cart" several B744Fs and B772Fs . . .sitting on overstocked shelves.

...except for flightcrew who have yet to be paid this month. ...Not to mention the previous crew on 747 types with this same aircarrier, who could not get the airplane airbourne, in the required regulated distance.
Needs improvement, me thinks.
Dog poo in, dog poo out, seems to be the modus operandi with MK....at least in the recent past.

Maintenance is one thing, operational experience with aircraft FD crew is quite another...

Right with you Charterman. Too many kenya cowboys in my industry. Lets hope the revamped MK can show us how it should be done.
