Pun airline to take off with Airbus A330

In the hair salon business, there's creative names like «hairitage» or «knot just hair». In Bulgaria, an airline named Gulliv Air is preparing for launch.

In Jonathan Swift’s novel, the main character Gulliver travels to Liliput, Brobdingnag and Glubbdubdrib, among others. Where the new Bulgarian airline called Gulliv Air will be flying to is not yet known. According to newssite Boardingpass, the airline wants to start with an Airbus A330-200.

According to the report, the aircraft is 13 years old and has already been in service with KLM as well as Shaheen Air from Pakistan. Meanwhile the Airbus A330 belongs to the leasing company Aircastle and is stored in the USA. As head of Gulliv Air, Boardingpass names Ianko Ivanov, who founded and manages Bulgarian carrier BH Air.
