The ailing Boeing 737-600 is being brought back to life thanks to a new Canadian airline named Aeroflyer.
The carrier, which is based in Calgary and Kelowna, is hoping to launch operations this month.
Two 737-600s have so far been acquired and painted in the airline’s livery. These were both previously flown by WestJet and recently retired from that carrier.
They have registrations C-GKFP and c-GKFQ.
The airline hopes to acquire more aircraft, including 737-700 types with greater passenger capacity.
Where Will Aeroflyer Fly?
Based out of Calgary and Kelowna, Aeroflyer is targeting charter work, particularly with private and commercial customers, sports teams and tour operators. It does not plan to offer its own scheduled services, and its aircraft are likely to be seen all over Canada as well as internationally.
The airline’s website states: “Our goal is to provide flexible, convenient charter travel solutions that get your customers to destinations across North America and beyond. Rooted in Western Canada, our dedicated team draws on decades of homegrown expertise to deliver safe and reliable passenger air services.”
Aeroflyer is a subsidiary of KF Cargo, and is using the carrier’s Air Operator’s Certificate.
