Startup companies in times of COVID-19

In challenging times like today, most of the focus is concentrated upon airlines going under. While this is certainly a very difficult time for everyone involved with any of those, I think that this is only one side of the picture. As we speak, visionaries from all over the world try to make good use of the abundance of aircraft, people and routes available in the wake of the crisis - inevitably creating new job opportunities in place of the perished ones. This thread will be about new, startup airlines appearing in times of COVID-19 and everything associated with them. I can start the list by naming three new European brands I can think of right now:
  • Ocean, Germany - 11 aircraft, looking to commence operations in 2021/2022, will likely serve part of what used to be the Eurowings long-haul leisure network
  • Animawings, Romania - one A320, flying leisure flights from various Romanian airports for now
  • GullivAir, Bulgaria - new ACMI company with one A330-200, its exact utilisation remains to be found out soon
Any other examples anyone of you can think of?

Ocean will start with 3 airplanes and hire mainly former Sunexpress Germany employees. No chance for anybody outside the Lufthansa group.

Donít be fooled by the lufthansa management that Ocean is a new airline.
It will be flying (for now) with Eurowings livery and flown by Sunexpress and maybe a few Germanwings pilots, ofcourse with far worse conditions then before.
it is defacto another AOC just to reduce the pay to crew. Finally lufthansa has the option to fly long haul from Frankfurt without PPV pilots

Ocean=Discovery

On 6th of May 2020 "Ocean" got registered at Frankfurt. As it was a LH-project code name it goes now on the Market as "Discovery" / Eurowings Discovery, as a transfer from Sunexpress Deutschland which get liquidated step by step after the announcement made to the employees on 23rd of June 2020.

EGO Airways in Italy are starting with E190 with national routes. It might work out if they stick to a low cost business model because passengers aren't subject to quarantine. Thy are still looking for pilots, mainly type rated. I don't know if Italian is a requirement.
Kairos is another start up in Italy but I did not hear much about them.

A friend is starting a sea plane business in Hong Kong.

Cant be true. If thats the case Ocean (Eurowings discount discovery) will be in violation of the deal the Pilot Union made with Lufthansa. Only way it can be true if that pilot was on some kind of secondment from a LH group airline.
