Air Sea Lines news

Last updated 20/5 00:10

It is currently unknown if Air Sea Lines will be operating this summer. The Twin Otter registered SX-GIK (c/n 768) will be flying for Harbour Air Malta on their summer schedule (currently it is in Medavia's hangar in Malta). It was ferried on 20/4/2009 from ACH (St. Gallen-Altenrhein, Switzerland), where it was undergoing maintenance, to OLB (Sardinia, Italy) and then to MLA (Valletta, Malta). The second Twin Otter registered SX-BVP (c/n 283) is currently in ACH for maintenance and the third one, registered SX-BMG (c/n 375), is parked at their base in Corfu expecting to be ferried for maintenance to ACH as well. A forth -all white- Twin Otter, registered C-FSHJ (c/n 691), was seen in CFU (Corfu, Greece) in April 2008. It was ferried to ACH for painting and maintenance but afterall the company decided not to use it and put it on sale. While in ACH, it had received the Greek registration SX-BXF but then was reregistered to D-IHAI. SX-GIK was on sale also, but it's unsure if it was bought from Harbour Air Malta or Air Sea Lines decided not to sell it and lease it to them.

Update 20/5/2009
Ex SX-GIK took it's maltese registration (9H-AFY) and temporary sticker titles of Harbour Air Malta. See photo at the end.
