New Spanish airline to operate BAe 146s


A new Spanish airline, TAER Andalus, is planning to operate BAe 146s from Córdoba, in Andalucía, to points within Spain and northern Africa. A single aircraft would be operated beginning in April 2008, and then joined by a second in June, eventually building up to a fleet of four. The airline is a joint venture between local firm Transportes Aereos Espejo and BAe 146 operator Pan Air Líneas Aéreas, who would operate the 146s on TAER Andalus’ behalf. Córdoba has been without scheduled passenger service for many years, as the airport’s 1,380m (4,528 ft) runway is too short to accomodate most jet aircraft. This length poses no problem for the 146, however. The proposed destinations for TAER Andalus’ services include Barcelona, Valencia, Valladolid/Leon, the Canary and Balearic Islands, and Tanger, Rabat, and Casablanca in Morocco. Charters to the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Italy would also be operated.
