An overall observation is that the holiday destinations are greatly in evidence. One which seems particularly attractive for taxi and tourism flights is Olbia in Sardinia, currently in the Italy white zone. A particularly revealing statement on the web site my-sardinia.com states that the numbers of new Delta infections has recently been rising because of the celebrations around the European Football Championship! GOOOOAL !
Monday 19 July: After coming from Baku to Geneva via Riyadh on the afternoon of Sunday 18 the Airbus A319 aircraft registered as 4K-8888 left for Baku. According to the sites airframes.org and planespotters.net this aircraft was built in December 2015 in a VIP Company Jet (CJ) configuration, was named Baku and is at the disposal of the Government of Azerbaijan.
Tuesday 20 July: Two of the UAE Royal Jet fleet of Boeing 737 Luxury Business jets transferring passengers between Geneva and Abu Dhabi. Clearly the Emirates has many important people coming to Geneva to escape the heat.
Wednesday 21 July: A Global 6000 of Nomad Airlines once again going to Princess Juliana Airport Antilles , this time via Zurich. The previous flight of this aircraft was on 1 July, when it took off just before midnight; not nice!
Wednesday 21 July: A Global Jet 7500 taking passengers to the Yucatan Peninsula via George Town in the Grand Cayman Islands. Business, pleasure or both?
Thursday 22 July: arrival from Little Rock, Arkansas of a very new Falcon 8X just registered with the San Marino tail number T7-ONEX (nothing to do with the Geneva Onex). Quite unusual to have four letters after the T7! As usual, owner identification is a closely guarded secret for San Marino registrations, but it appears to belong to ExecuJet Middle East. It then left for Bucharest vis Baghdad.
Friday 23 July: A Global 7500 flight operated by Vistajet Malta taking passengers to the Yucatan Peninsula via George Town on the Cayman Islands. Business, pleasure or both?
Saturday 24 July: A nice Pilatus PC12 of the UBS bank coming from Lugano via Pisa and St Moritz, then leaving back to Lugano via Locarno. Requests no tracking of this aircraft!
Sunday 25 July: A quick trip to Naples and back for the Gulf 5 operated by Albinati Aeronautics, owned by Credit Suisse and normally used by the ultra-rich Swiss businessman.
In total, 12 scheduled (low-cost) flights to or from Olbia and at least 13 flights to or from Olbia by taxi or business/tourism operatosr.
