Amsterdam Airlines has signed with Nordcaps

Post by Boudewijn van Oirschot »

Source: http://www.luchtvaartnieuws.nl/news/?ID=29693 is in Dutch so here is a short translation:

Amsterdam Airlines will start fly from the end of March between northern European countries and Afghanistan. The Dutch company has a contract signed with Nord Caps, a military alliance of five countries in Northern Europe. The agreement has a duration of at least one year and may be extended by two years.

The flights of Amsterdam Airlines, on behalf of Nordcaps, will depart from airports in Oslo, Copenhagen, Vasteras (Sweden) and Pori (Finland) to militairy zones in Kabul and Mazar I Sharif. A stop-over in Trabzon (Turkey) is necessairy.

Well, it's good news for Amsterdam Airlines. At least a contract but instead of carrying tourism and business travellers, which was the statement of AA, it'll carry military guys.

(p.s. sorry for my terrible English, I hope it is quite understandable)

I've heard that they have the crews based in Trabzon, with one set flying Trabzon-Afghanistan, and the other set flying Trabzon-Scandanavia.
It used to be Pegasus who flew this quite regularly, so it should keep one of the AAX A320s busy.
