FAR EASTERN AIR TRANSPORT have announced that they have launched a bid to take over TRANSASIA AIRWAYS’ operations. aircraft, and staff. FAT seem confident that they can achieve this by January 11, 2017 which is when TNA will be formally wound up. Most people I have talked to seem skeptical though. FAT say that if the bid is succwssful, they will name the airline FAR EASTERN UNITED AIR.
FAT have apparently already started recruiting ex-TNA staff, and have confirmed they will be bidding for some of the TNA routes. I don’t know which aircraft they are interested in but I do know it’s not the A330s as negotiations are on-going to place them elsewhere.
