Fly2Sky Partners with World Atlantic Airlines
Commencing in mid-September 2023, Fly2Sky has partnered up with World Atlantic Airlines, a Miami-based charter operator that utilises a fleet of eight McDonnell Douglas MD-83s to operate its charter services, primarily throughout the Caribbean.
Helping to further cement its position in the Miami-Caribbean sector, as part of this new partnership, Fly2Sky will base LZ-FSB, one of its Airbus A320s in Miami to operate charter services for World Atlantic Airlines.
It is expected that the Bulgarian operators’ aircraft will remain in operation for World Atlantic Airlines until the second quarter (Q2) of 2024.
LZ-FSB makes up one of four Airbus A320s that Fly2Sky operates, it also also their only CFM-powered A320, with the other three being IAE-powered. The aircraft has a total of 180 seats and at the time of writing, is 16 years old.
Fly2Sky also operates two Airbus A321s for a total fleet count of six aircraft since it started operations just one year ago in 2022.
Commenting on their first entrance into the U.S. aviation sector, Petar Lavrinov, Accountable Manager of Fly2Sky Airlines, has said, “We are beyond excited to collaborate with World Atlantic Airlines in our first North American ACMI project.”
“We look forward to working together with the team at World Atlantic Airlines and are excited to deliver a pleasant flying experience that mirrors the warmth and vibrancy of the region we’ll be serving.”
