Greece’s Astra Airlines has leased former Air Dolomiti BAe 146-300 I-ADJF (msn E3193) from BAE Systems Regional Aircraft as SX-DIX. She was ferried from Southend to Thessaloniki on 20 May, still wearing basic Air Dolomiti colors with no titles. She is configured in a 99-seat all economy class layout and will operate charter flights from Thessaloniki’s Makedonia Airport, as well as a planned scheduled service to Kiev. Astra has borrowed crews from Malmö Aviation to fly her. The airline’s original BAe 146-300, SX-DIZ (msn E3206), is based at Athens, operating to Larnaca on behalf of Olympic Airlines. She will also be used on a new contract to operate services to Thessaloniki and Chios on behalf of Athens Airways.
