Crossair


Swiss airline Crossair took delivery of the first of three former PSA/USAir BAe 146-200s in April 1990. A series 300 joined them in September 1991. In 1993, the 146s were replaced by four new-build Avro RJ85s. RJ100s started arriving in late 1995. Unfortunately, the airline’s RJ operations were marred by the crash of Crossair RJ100 HB-IXM (msn E3291) near Zürich on 24 November 2001. In 2002, Crossair became the nucleus of Swiss, together with the rump of bankrupt Swissair, at which time the airline’s fleet included four RJ85s and fifteen RJ100s.
