Chartair buys AusJet(NT)?

Arr.

Me monkeys an' parrots be spendin' their time drinkin' a little too much greencan, but they do be bringin' back some innnerestin' news.

Seems that th' powers that be at Chartair are givin' so many pieces of eight to AusJet that they be flyin' a jet up from their hideout on Port Phillip to cart the treasure back home.

This be makin' the biggest fleet in the area, fer sure, but what does it mean for the wee pirates?

Sure its not the other way around? When I was around up there last year Chartair was very much on the table of Ausjet.

Some years ago Skyport/Chartair was 'very much on the table' of Tillair.

I doubt that Chartair would touch the Idiots @ Ausjet with a 100m Pole! Ausjet have gone from having the monopoly 2 1/2 years ago when NAC crashed to pissing every customer off and now they are reeping what they sowed!! I just heard a rumour they won't be around by next week. Seems the pilots still left there are seeking jobs elswhere while they still can.

Why would you buy a sinking ship, when you can just steal the treasure thats on it?

aviation_enthus,Aghh wrong!!!Tillair owned Chartair.
Skyport Group purchased Tillair the Chartair name came with that deal.Early 1988.The Chartair name was reintroduced when they split from the Airnorth group
Id say Chartair would be only after Ausjets Hangar and vacant land in Dwn.
Lets see what happens in Alice now.

Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when Roger Leach told the Tillair Skygod's that he now owned Tillair.

Sad really...

But with MW and his family running the show up there, the only surprising thing is that it has taken this long for the operation to close down.


DIVOSH!
