Airbus A330-200 from Qatar Airways: Gulliv Air’s trust lies on this model as well.

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.

More airlines are taking off

The fact that the corona crisis is putting many established airlines in dire straits is not deterring start-ups in other countries either: Green Airlines is preparing its launch in Germany, while in Canada a new airline, OWG, is targeting sunny destinations.
