And we have it here – the year 2021. We wish everyone to have better and more successful than the previous one. And in the meantime, we wish you a pleasant reading of our Sunday Summaries.
Concorde in Bratislava
Bratislava Airport commemorated 30 years since the first visit to the iconic supersonic aircraft. On December 29, 1960, the G-BOAA brought British passengers to Bratislava to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Vienna.
Condor from Bratislava
The German holiday operator plans to take direct flights from Slovakia to Punta Cana. During the spring holidays, we can look forward to two departures from Bratislava and one from Košice, on which their Boeing 767-300 aircraft will probably be deployed.
Return of MAX to operation at American Airlines
On December 29, the first commercial flight of MAX took place in the USA. American Airlines AA718 headed from Miami to La Guardia. The company expects a gradual increase in departures from Miami, which should be 36 in the final number.
Reinforcements for SWISS and Qatar Airways Cargo
On New Year’s Eve, SWISS received its fifth Airbus A320neo. The aircraft with the registration HB-JDC was named “Pontresina” after a picturesque alpine village located near the resorts of Samedan and St. Moritz.
On the same day, Qatar Airways Cargo received up to three additions to their cargo fleet. The three Boeing 777Fs thus increased the total number of aircraft in the fleet to thirty pieces, while one of the delivered pieces is also the number 200 in the number of produced pieces of this variant.
