Aviaco article in Airliner World

by Matt Falcus

Airliner World Nov 12

I just received copies of the November 2012 issue of Airliner World. In it is my article on Aviaco – a classic Spanish airline from days gone by.

Aviaco was a pioneer of domestic and charter travel in Spain, starting in the 1960s and eventually being completely merged into Iberia in 1999. You may remember its DC-8s, DC-9’s and F-27s, and you may have flown with them if you went on a charter holiday to Spain from the UK or Germany in the 1980s and 90s.

Other articles in this issue of Airliner World include Airbus Market Forecast, LOT Polish Airlines, Victorville Overview, and the end of bmibaby.

You can buy the issue now in good newsagents, or online here. Let me know what you think of the Aviaco article.

I am sorry, but there are several mistakes in your Aviaco article. The wikipedia article in English, by the way, is also wrong. Aviaco started in 1948 as a private carrier, it operated scheduled flights, and in 1954 the INI bought most of the shares … It was integrated as an Iberia subsidiary in 1959, but even then was managed as an independent airline … later on, INI bought a larger & of shares. If you can read Spanish, this entry is far more accurate. http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aviaco

Hi Lewis,
you’re right, the two Austrian 737’s are OE-LNN and OE-LNO. I have updated the list.

Thanks for the feedback!
