No matter how many fail, there’s always somebody who can’t resist the temptation to start a new airline. 90% fail within their first three years, a statistic that must make you wonder who on Earth was dim enough to lend them any money in the first place.
So one more steps into the fray on June 14, flying charters for Bravo Tours to start with, then operating from the Danish city of Aalborg on these:
Aalborg – Dublin – twice-weekly effective June 21
Aalborg – Edinburgh – twice-weekly effective June 24
Aalborg – Nice – weekly flights effective June 26
The company has leased two E-195’s. Its founder Thomas Hugo Møller is an ex-pilot and father of six children, as well as being considered something of an eccentric. That seems to be a requirement these days for starting an airline.
If the routes do well, which seems hard to fathom right now, Aalborg is after all, only the fourth largest city in one of Europe’s smallest countries, they hope to expand to Copenhagen and some of Europes more popular summer destinations.
Best of luck, you’re going to need it…don’t do too well because if you do RyanAir will be in Aalborg before you can blink…
