CT2 is planning to launch its own airline to serve core
routes in Spain and new long-haul destinations of Cape Town and Durban.

The Boeing 767-300 aircraft has not yet been given a brand name,
but uses the working project title of Man-Air.

Headed up by Michael O’Donovan, ex-director of flight
operations at Excel Airways and former chief pilot at Air 2000, Man-Air will
operate as a separate company to CT2 and serve third party operators.

An application for an Air Operators Licence is with the
Civil Aviation Authority.

Based at Manchester, CT2 will use the aircraft on core
routes to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Malaga, Lanzarote and Alicante, as well as
Durban and Cape Town.

Flights are likely to be launched for the winter season in

A long-haul configuration, with business class, will be able
to carry 287 passengers.

CT2 launched its low-cost carrier, LOCO Flights, in 2002.
