The European Coastal Airlines seaplane fleet is growing…
And the new planes are making quite a journey to be part of the Croatian island-hopping revolution.
With a raft of new destinations about to join the network – downtown Split, Lastovo, Vela Luka on Korcula, Novalja on Pag – the need for more plances is clear, and two more Twin Otters will soon be in service. Thanks to Twin Otter Spotter for the update:
This afternoon 9A-TOC departed Murrieta on the first sector of its delivery flight to Croatia. On arrival it becomes the third Twin Otter for European Coastal, one of which is in service, with the second aircraft due to leave Switzerland for Croatia shortly. Aircraft number four (MSN 96) remains at Murrieta undergoing final upgrade work, and it will become 9A-TOE.
The ferry flight to Croatia is being operated by Calgary’s World Wide Ferry, who were also responsible for delivering the first two Twin Otters to ECA.
