Goldwing begins operations

Italian start-up Goldwing Airlines began operations on 20 December with a twice daily flight from Taranto, in southern Italy, to Roma Fiumicino and a single daily flight from Taranto to Milano Malpensa. Goldwing was planning to begin service using a BAe 146-100 leased from Air Botswana, but the aircraft was not ready in time. Instead, initial flights were flown using a BAe 146-200 wet-leased from Flightline and then by a SAAB 2000 wet-leased from Med Airlines. Goldwing had originally intended to fly from Palermo, but relocated to Taranto to avoid going head to head with British Airways-backed National Jet Italia (NJI).
