The upcoming changeover to our winter schedules fast approaches and this year, our winter schedule will be host to a selection of big fleet changes to a few of our airline divisions. Nordic Sky and Fly UK Cargo will both undergo a selection of fleet changes for their respective winter operations, with new and highly requested airframes being added.

Nordic Sky
 

 

 

  • Nordic Sky’s winter schedule sees the introduction of the Daher Kodiak 100 Series II, a small single-engine turboprop aircraft. Delivery flights for the Kodiak 100 will commence from the 1st of October from Sandpoint Airport (KSZT) to Bergen (ENBR). These delivery flights will provide a unique challenge for pilots wishing to deliver the Kodiak to Bergen due to the transatlantic crossing required; a first for the Fly UK Group.  Scheduled operations will then commence with the changeover to Nordic Sky’s winter schedule on the 1st of November.  
     
    The Kodiak 100 Series will be available as a Class E airframe.
     
  • As a result of the Kodiak 100 Series being introduced to Nordic Sky, the Beechcraft B1900D is scheduled to be retired from scheduled operations. Retirement flights to Kemble will commence on the 1st of November.  

Fly UK Cargo
 
  • Fly UK Cargo’s winter schedule sees the introduction of the Boeing 737-800BCF, converted from Fly2’s stored Boeing 737-800’s in Kemble. Delivery flights for the 737-800BCF will commence on the 1st of October, with flights from storage at Kemble to the Boeing MRO facility at London Gatwick, then onwards to the type’s base at London Stansted. Scheduled operations will commence fully with Fly UK Cargo’s winter schedule change on the 1st of November.

    The Boeing 737-800BCF’s will be available as a Class D airframe, opening up Cargo operations to lower ranks whilst also providing a lot  more flexibility for European operations. 
 
 
  • With the addition of the B738F’s to the fleet, two of Cargo’s Boeing 757-200PF airframes will be retired from scheduled operations. Retirement flights to Victorville will commence on the 1st of November. The remaining two 757-200PF’s will remain in Cargo’s fleet however and will continue to fly scheduled operations alongside the new B738F’s.

We hope that our members will enjoy flying both these new aircraft and the new possibilities they bring to the Fly UK Group!
