New Spanish airline TAER Andalus is hoping to start operations with a leased BAe 146 this summer. Initial routes would link the airline’s base at Córdoba, in Andalucía, to Barcelona, Valencia, Bilbao, Santiago de Compostela, Tenerife, Lisboa, and Casablanca. A second 146 would be added three months after the start of operations, to increase frequencies and operate charters. Although initial plans called for the 146s to be operated by Pan Air Líneas Aéreas, this may no longer happen. Eduardo Gavilán, TAER Andalus’ manager, indicated that the airline is in discussions with several operators to fulfill this role. TAER Andalus hopes to carry 300,000 to 350,000 passengers in its first year, and to break even within two years.
