Global X job posting: Is there a new Boeing 717 airline coming soon?

Actually, one airline after the other is phasing out its Boeing 717. A new operator could soon be added.

In the world she is only on the road for Delta, Hawaiian and Qantas. The Boeing 717 has already been phased out by almost all operators, in Europe by Volotea last year. But a new 717 airline could soon be added.

Global Crossing Airlines is looking for crews for the aircraft model. There are currently no Boeing 717s flying for the American airline, which also calls itself Global X. It currently operates a fleet of seven Airbus A320s and A321s. By the end of the year there should be 15 aircraft. The Airbus A330 is also listed under “future fleet” on the website.

Traveling in Afghanistan

The airline is only around a year old and specializes in charter services. It offers services for sports teams, wet lease services but also migration and repatriation flights. Her first assignment was humanitarian flights for the US government in Afghanistan. The airline has placed an Airbus A321 F with Avianca, which flies it in Latin America. It is not clear when the Boeing 717 will join the fleet.

When Boeing bought McDonnell Douglas in 1997, the aircraft manufacturer took on the project to build an MD-95. This is how the Boeing 717 came about. The jet was never a blockbuster. Only 156 copies were made.

Hawaiian very happy with 717

Delta plans to phase out the plane in 2025. Hawaiian also only wants to be on the road with the planes with T-tail until the middle of the decade. Nevertheless, people there are enthusiastic. Marketing boss Avi Mannis recently praised the Boeing 717 as the perfect aircraft for flights between the Hawaiian islands with high frequency, short routes and many passengers. At the moment you are “very, very happy” with the 717.
