Sockling Airways was an ACMI ( "Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance") and ad-hoc flight-chartering company and sports organization focussed on. Headquartered at Cambridge Airport, Cambridgeshire. Incorporated in November 1984, the company began operation in 1986. The company was formed as Suckling Aviation by Roy and Merlyn Suckling, who initially operated cargo in Ipswich.
He was a flight trainer at the Ipswich Flight Club and his family counsel. Regular service began on 26 April 1986 from Ipswich Airport to Manchester and Amsterdam with a Dornier Do 228 with only 18 seats. Ipswich Airport suffered above-average precipitation in the 1987 season, with the grassy strip allegedly having been affected by Suckling Dornier.
Air Regional, the airport's operator, loudly criticised that the Dornier was stirring up the airstrip, and in February 1988 Suckling had to move to RAF Wattisham for a while before she found a place of residence in Cambridge. As a result, Ipswich International Airports was shut down. One of the most notable moments of this period was a longer contribution about the carrier on BBC TV "40 Minutes", which showed the launch of the Dornier 228 and the preparation of on-board food in a home cuisine, albeit by a qualified cooks.
After the relocation of the company to Cambridge, a moderate extension followed and an upgrade to the bigger Dornier 328. Connections to Edinburgh were established, as was a forklift connection from Norwich to the town. Up to 1999, the carrier carried 110,000 people on its Dorniers aircraft and commenced operations from London Central Airport to Dundee and Glasgow.
Southers and Gloag acquired a 90% shareholding in the carrier for 5 million and announces their change of name to ScotAirways. While the Suckling familiy remains responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Cambridge-based carrier, Souter takes over as CEO. The development of a London City base with connections to Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness and Paris and from Inverness and Southampton to Amsterdam marked the beginning of an aggressive program of development.
Soon after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack in the USA, the carrier was in the middle of the aerospace bust. ScotAirways' very existence necessitated cuts and the Inverness, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Paris, Norwich and Cambridge departments were discontinued, some only a few month after their introduction.
When Cambridge Airport was closed, Dundee became the airline's reservation and service centre while its headquarters in Cambridge stayed. In 2004, the company recorded a gain for the first time in several years. In 2004, the company transported more than 200,000 airlines, thus reaching a significantly higher value on only three flights than the existing major route itinerary.
ScotAirways launched its first twin jets, an 80-seater British Aerospace 146, on 9 May 2005 in the face of strong Edinburgh - London City traffic from British Airways. Codeshare agreements have been concluded with Flybe on the Edinburgh and KLM Cityhopper on the Amsterdam line.
Ann Gloag and Brian Souter jointly acquired their shares in the carrier on September 18, 2006, to Roy and Merlyn Suckling. From 26 March 2007 to 31 December 2010, ScotAirways was operating as a twin carrier of the brandnew CityJet for Air France system, which took off from London City Airport.
ScottAirways codeshares its current flights to Edinburgh and Dundee with Air France and commenced new flights to George Best Belfast City Airport, Strasbourg and Eindhoven on CityJet. ScotAirways stopped operating the Southampton-Amsterdam line on 10 August 2007 and the Belfast line was closed in spring 2008.
Since November 2007 ScotAirways offers ACMI service for the Blue Islands carrier. A Dornier 328 was coated in the paint of the Blue Islands and ran from Jersey Airport to Geneva Airport and Zurich Airport. Loganair, the Glasgow-based carrier, today confirmed that it has approved the purchase of Suckling Airways.
It remained an independent carrier with its own licenses and certifications until it was fully incorporated into Loganair in April 2013. 5 ] The carrier withdrew its brand name ScotAirways and returned to its trademark Suckling Airways in July 2011. As a result of CityJet's closure of the London City - Edinburgh line, Suckling Airways has been notified that it will be closing its London City hub at the end of October 2013.
Since April 2013 Suckling Airways is no longer active as an air carrier, the plane is handed over to Loganair.
