Animawings, a new airline with Romanian-Greek shareholding
Animawings, a new airline specializing in charters, will operate flights on the Romanian market starting this year. The airline operator has as shareholders the company Memento Group, of which Christian Tour, the largest Romanian tour operator, as well as the Greek airline operator Orange2Fly, is part.
"The idea of creating this company was born more than a year ago and started from the real need for aircraft to serve tour operators organizing charter flights in Romania. The domestic charter market is growing, while the number of planes available for charters in Romania fails to cover the necessary", stated Tudor Constantinescu, Animawings Sales Manager.
Airbus A320 aircraft with 180 seats
Animawings has two Airbus A320-200 aircraft, each with 180 seats. From my checks, Orange2Fly owns 4 A320 aircraft with 180 seats and will most likely operate under the Animawings brand.
They will provide charter flights operated by some of the tour operators in Romania to holiday destinations in Romania. Greece, Turkey, Spain, Egypt and Tunisia.
"From the first moment, the new airline was successful, our offer being embraced by the market, so that the whole capacity was contracted by the prestigious tour operators operating in Romania, among which are TUI TravelCenter, Dertour, Prestige Tour, Christian Tour. Requests came from other tour operators, but the fleet we have at the moment does not allow us to honor all requests. We hope that in the future, when we have a larger fleet, we will serve all tour operators interested in organizing charter flights.", he mentioned Antonio Stoian, CEO Animawings.
Complete services on board
The charter courses organized by tour operators and operated by Animawings will benefit from complete services for travelers (hold luggage, hand luggage and catering on board).
The development plans of the new airline operator are large and are not limited to the charters area, this being seen only as a first step. For the future, it is envisaged to increase the fleet and expand the range of services.
The Animawings team consists of specialists in the field of air transport, having extensive experience in Romanian and foreign aviation.
