IATA: MA | ICAO: MSP | Callsign: MESOPOTAMIAN

 

Mesopotamian Airlines is the flag carrier of Iraq. It was created in 2003 after the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime to replace the former flag carrier Air Iraq that had gone bankrupt in the years prior. The airline started off with a fleet of Boeing 727-200s, 737-200s, 747-200s, and 747SPs inherited from Air Iraq. In 2006 second hand A320s and A321s arrived to replace the 727s and some of the 732s, and in 2008 CRJ900s arrived to supplement the remaining 737-200s on shorter routes. 2013 marked the arrival of new A320s to replace the last 732s and to facilitate expansion. Recently orders have been placed for A320neos, scheduled for 2023 delivery, and A220-300s, with the first being delivered last year in 2021. The 747SPs were short lived, being replaced by A340-500s in 2006. Secondhand 747-400s soon followed to phase out the 747-200s in 2009. Two of the last passenger 767-300ERs built arrived in 2012 to increase long haul frequencies. A long haul fleet replacement plan was announced in 2016 including A321LRs, which arrived in 2018 and 2019, along with A330neos arriving in 2023 and later. The A330neos are expected to replace the A345s, B744s, and B763s by 2026.

IATA: 2V | ICAO: NFC | Callsign:NORAF CARGO

North African Air Cargo is a Libyan cargo airline created in 1980. It was based out of Tripoli International Airport until 2018 when operations were moved to Mitiga International Airport after the former closed. Operations began with Antonov An-12s and An-24RVs, some of which are still in service. Ilyushin Il-76s were transferred from the Libyan Air Force in the 1980s in an effort to appear to be downsizing the military's cargo fleet (in reality the aircraft were still mostly flown by military personnel with military cargo onboard). During conflicts in 2014, 3 of the airline's aircraft were destroyed by shelling of the airport in Tripoli. The airline have been banned from the EU since 2014, along with all other Libyan airlines. Recently the airline managed to secure leases on Boeing 737-800BCF and 777Fs through shady business dealings. It is unknown who they are leased from, nor how the airline has the funds to pay the leases. Only time will tell how long the NAAC 737s and 777s will be around for...

Current Fleet:
4 Antonov An-12s

9 Antonov An-24RVs

2 Antonov An-124s

1 Boeing 737-800BCF

2 Boeing 777Fs

3 Illyushin Il-76TDs

Group B  |  Fly Kuwait  |  Kuwait International Airport (KWI)

 

Lore:

Fly Kuwait was founded in 1988 by a British millionaire who owned a bank in Kuwait City. But after a few years of general route fleet expansion the country of Iraq invaded Kuwait. During the Gulf War; Fly Kuwait suffered substantially as all flights were grounded. But after the war ended another airline called Air Kuwait had collapsed and they sold to Fly Kuwait for about $18 million dollars. The airline after that continued to grow and grow till it had a fleet of about 100 aircraft. The airline also grew to be the second largest airline in Kuwait (Behind the flag-carrier Kuwait International Airlines). But in 2020 with the pandemic the airline faced may tough choices particularly with routes to China. So Fly Kuwait closed all flights to Shanghai and Beijing. And then January of 2022 saw the airline open flights to Canada and to New York City. And now they plan on expanding to Chicago and order 10 787-8s.

Group C | Saltana Cargo Airlines | Muscat International Airport (MCT/OOMS)

 

Saltana Cargo Airlines is a cargo airline and subsidiary of the flag-carrier airline of the Sultanate of Oman, Saltana. Capitalizing on the alleged viability of the Middle East as a cargo hub, Saltana Cargo was founded shortly after the flag-carrier itself was established. Operations to regional routes and premiere routes in Europe commenced on passenger flights via the cargo hold of Saltana's aircraft. Cargo-only flights formally began upon the delivery of brand-new McDonnell Douglas MD-11Fs and Airbus A300-600Fs. Acquisition of the aforementioned aircraft also coincided with services to the Far East. Saltana Cargo aircraft are decorated with the current liveries of Saltana Airlines aircraft.

A4O-FA is Saltana Cargo's third and final MD-11F. It differs from the first three MD-11Fs the airline procured as this aircraft underwent a passenger to cargo aircraft conversion, previously operating for Air Mandarin. It is pictured here wearing special decals promoting the airline's role as the logistics sponsor of the 19th Arabian Cup football tournament in 2009. 

 

In 2013, Saltana Airlines announced its plans to modernize, then shrink the fleet of Saltana Cargo, further integrating its operations into Saltana Airlines passenger flights, and saving the airline a lot of capital as it planned to announce a major passenger aircraft deals with Airbus and Boeing. By 2020, the airline's cargo division would consist of only the Boeing 777F, and from a fleet of 10 aircraft consisting of the three MD11Fs, two A300-600Fs and one 747-400F, Saltana Cargo's fleet would only consist of 5 Boeing 777Fs. The retirement of older aircraft was stalled however, due to the increased demand of cargo following the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Group A | Royal Qatari Airways | Doha (DOH)

Attached File  Royal Qatari Logo.png   137.13KB   0 downloads

 

Royal Qatari Airways was founded in 1991 as the flag carrier and largest airline of Qatar. The airline started out by flying half a dozen A320s to various Arabic destinations, but rapidly grew into the major international airline known today. From it's hub in Doha, the airline flies to 200 destinations across all six inhabited continents. The airline is world renowned for catering and service along with it's industry-leading hard and soft products. The airline is also well known for the soft power it exerted to try to maintain it's Arabic Gulf routes during the Gulf Blockade.
 
The airline is run by Doha-based Qatari Airways Group, but the government of Qatar holds a majority stake in the airline. The airline has expanded aggressively in the past two decades, which has made people skeptical about Qatari Airways Group's claims that the airline has made a profit without government funding. (Apparently, paying very little airport fees at Doha Hamad International Airport and having aircraft purchased on behalf of them doesn't count.)
 
As of 2022, the Royal Qatari's fleet is comprised of:
  • 28 A320-200
  • 25 A320NEO*
  • 18 A321-200
  • 50 A321NEO* (Includes LR and XLR variants)
  • 6 A330-200**
  • 8 A330-300**
  • 35 A350-900 (25 on order)
  • 20 A350-1000 (35 on order)
  • 22 A380-800**
  • 15 777-200LR**

  • 50 777-9*
  • 25 787-8
  • 8 787-9 (30 on order)
  • 15 787-10*

* Awaiting delivery

** Originally supposed to be retired in 2023, 2028, and 2028 for the A330, A380, and 777-200LR respectively, retired early due to the pandemic, pulled from retirement due to high demand and the FIFA world cup, gone back to original retirement dates with the A380 and 777-200LR going through cabin refurbishments.

Group B | Alaitisal Airways | Muscat (MCT)
 
Alaitisal was founded in 1988 as a hybrid carrier in Oman. The airline started by flying a 757 to secondary cities in Europe, Asia, and Africa. Nowadays, it flies to 175 destinations throughout the three continents with it's fleet of 757s and A321s. The airline is 100% privately owned.
 
Noticing that many of the other Middle Eastern carriers didn't serve secondary cities on the three continents, Alaitisal has cemented itself as the one-stop option between secondary cities on the three continents. (For example, GOT to HKT via MCT rather than via FRA and BKK.)

Group A | Air Oman - الطيران العماني | Muscat (MCT)

 

Shortly after the demise of the common Gulf area airline set up with neighbouring states in the early seventies, the sultanate of Oman created its own airline, Air Oman, in order to connect the country with the rest of the region at first, and farther destinations later on, as well as serve the (at the time) small domestic market.

Today, Air Oman flies to most of the neighbouring capitals and larger cities from its hub in Muscat, as well as select destinations in Europe, Africa and Asia, and is looking into launching flights to North America.

 

As a state-owned airline, Air Oman serves both as an ambassador of the country overseas and assures an influx of incoming tourism, as portrayed on the latest airline's livery, where the Oman tourism board logo is featured prominently.

In the early 2010s, Air Oman underwent a major makeover, including a new brand identity based on the natural wonders of Oman: its oasis, its desert, and the new logo is a stylised Osprey, often found in the region.

CairoAir, Formerly RiverAirTransport is a privately owned freight and logistics provider based out of Cairo handing both corporate and private freight and freight forwarding services to destinations both domestically and internationally. Their all Boeing freighter fleet consists of the 727-200BCF, 737-400BCF, 737-800BCF and the 767-300BCF. 

 

Cairo Air was founded in 2005 by James Martin III a English businessman of Egyptian decent who had worked for the german freight carrier GAC for the last decade looking to start his own freight airline moved to Egypt and founded RiverAir (later renamed CairoAir) with a fleet of two Boeing 727 aircraft. The airline would undertake private contracting and freight forwarding services for the first years of their operation with around 100 staff members. As the fleet grew the company changed their direction starting to sell space on their planes to parcel companies and later offering

parcel services themselves by opening their first offices in Cairo which allowed people to drop of cargo they wished to ship directly to the airline as well as signing agreements with major companies to take on their shipping needs. In 2015 CairoAir rebranded and introduced their first 767-300BCF to support their International routes also opening up cargo services to the United States through their pre-established Amsterdam base. 

 

In 2017 the airline came upon their first hurdle after managing to stay afloat through the 2008 financial crisis their owner and CEO was killed when one of the airlines 727 aircraft crashed while taking off from Istanbul airport in Turky after the aircrafts number 2 engine detached from the aircraft on the takeoff roll causing a loss of hydraulics. The accident was ruled as being the fault of the aircrafts pilot for not properly inspecting the plane before takeoff and the Turkish maintenance facility for not properly re-installing the engine. The airline was also investigated by the FAA in the United States after one of their 767-300BCFs caught on fire on the ramp while parked at JFK leading to the aircraft being grounded for two months for the investigation and repairs to the affected components. The fire would later be ruled to have been caused by a improperly stored lithium ion battery. Even though the airline was struggling to battle legal disputes over the two accidents they still managed to set record freight numbers having moved 210,000 tons of cargo over the 2017 fiscal year. The companies VP would later be instated as CEO under the leadership of Anebos En-Atef the airline would establish their own maintenance facility capable of working on their dated aircraft. They would also acquire two additional 727 aircraft to be used for their parts.

 

Today CairoAir continues to prosper continuing to improve all sectors of their business and their global expansion and have vowed to lower their carbon footprint by replacing their older aircraft with 737-800 NG conversion freighters which are slowly being added to the fleet replacing their outdated Boeing 727 freighters already in service.
