The biggest Czech airline Travel Service repositioned two of its airplanes to foreign airports as the company was awarded by contracts from Icelandic and Danish travel agencies. The agencies lost its contracted flights due to Primera Air collapse.

Boeing 737 MAX8 with registration OK-SWD moved to Iceland yesterday. It is the forth MAX8 delivered this year to the airline. Boeing 737-800 with registration OK-TSH is now based in Copenhagen. “All flights are operated for travel agencies that had contracts with Primera Air,” Travel Service spokesperson Vlaďka Dufková said. New base at Keflavik Airport was established. The airlines flies to Mediterranean destinations and Canary Islands. Its MAX8 also flies from Akureyri Airport at North of Iceland. “We expected long-term cooperation,” Dufková said.

The second plane will be based in Copenhagen and is going to fly mainly to Mediterranean. However it flies to the Azores today. Apart from Copenhagen, the plane will also fly from Billund.
