Strategic Airlines to acquire OzJet Airlines

Strategic Airlines (Brisbane) announced it intends to acquire grounded and defunct OzJet Airlines formerly owned by HeavyLift Cargo Airlines.  This will allow Strategic Airlines to gain an AOC from Australia. Therefore Strategic Airlines will be formerly OzJet Airlines.

Here is the statement from Strategic Airlines:

Strategic announced today (June 29, 2009) the purchase of OzJet Airlines from administration.

Strategic gained the support of OzJet staff and creditors on Wednesday last week, to purchase the company.

“We are extremely pleased to announce the purchase of OzJet Airlines. It is a great outcome when you are able to not only ensure the payment of entitlements to staff, but also retain some of the existing employee base for future company operations. We are also thankful to the creditors who have supported our efforts in negotiation over the last few weeks” said Mr Michael James, Executive Director of Strategic. It is intended that the change in ownership will have very little impact on the existing operations of the airline. Strategic looks forward to introducing an Airbus A320 aircraft to the Perth market on the Derby route by the end of September, in place of the currently chartered Fokker 100 (F.28 Mk.0100).

OzJet Airlines (Melbourne) ceased all operations on May 21, 2009 after its owner HeavyLift Cargo Airlines declared it would no longer support the subsidiary. Previously the airline had suspended scheduled flights on March 12, 2006 and was operating charter flights. The shut down came after Perth Airport refused to handle the carrier until the unpaid bills were paid. OzJet had three Boeing 737-200s based in Perth operating flights to Derby and sub-service flights for travel company IndoJet Asia (Bali). The airline originally commenced operations on November 29, 2005.
