A new Greek airline, Ellinair, is planning to launch services using two former Brussels Airlines Avro RJ85s. The airline is being started by Thessaloniki-based tour operator, Mouzenidis Travel. It plans to fly primarily between Greece and Russia, beginning in the summer of 2014. Its first RJ85, G-CHPB (msn E2305 ex OO-DJZ) was recently ferried from Kemble, where she had been stored since last November, to Craiova, for pre-delivery work by Daedalus Tech.
