I have booked my hols to Cyprus next year. The only flights available are good times but with Strategic Airlines, I have read more bad reviews than good. I am hoping people who will be flying Strategic via Olympic this year can report back? Also did you check in at Gatwick with Strategic desk or Olympic.
fingers crossed all ok
Olympic are the booking gent, you're flying with Strategic so you'll ned to check-in at their desk.
The aircraft also comes in from Curfu (STU2134/5) to operate LGW-CFU (STU2136). It operates the same flight back-to-back.
Strategic only operate A320-200 from the UK airports, here is a picture from Airliners.net that shows the type of aircraft you will be on:
Have a good holiday
But googling Strategic Airlines UK leads to the flystrategic.co.uk URL, which in turn automatically redirects to airaustralia.com and its 'in administration' message. Do you know of another URL for the UK company ?
"Speaking to TTG this morning, Strategic Airlines' commercial director Neil Huston said the Australian company's administration had "no impact" on European operations.
"We are separate companies with a shareholder link but we are not impacted by their administration," he said.
"It's business as usual and we are currently operating a number of ad hoc charters around Europe," he added."
A Strategic A320 also departed from Manchester yesterday evening
The European arm of Strategic operates on an Air Operators Certificate registered in Luxembourg. Previous to this they operated on a French AOC....
And if Olympic have chartered Strategic for package holidays and they do close it shouldn't affect the holidays, Olympic will just find someone else to do the job. Your only concern should be this happening just as you are about to fly as it may takes a few days to organise a replacement.
Like you we are flying Strategic Airways in June but from Birmingham International to Rhodes. I too have read all the bad reviews and telephoned the holiday company, who reassurred me that Strategic had been chartered successfully by Olympic for many years. So if you hear anything, especially about delays on departure, please 'post' me and tell me the worst or best.
Has anybody flown by Strategic Airways from Birmingham International Airport to Rhodes? If so, were there any problems experienced especially concerning flight delays.
