Press release- April 26th, 2008

With the rising costs of fuel, North Eastern Airways (NEA, S.M.-NAW) has decided to retire up to 16 aircraft from its fleet. We will be retiring up to 5 Boeing 737-800's and will be retiring up to 10 MD-83's. The retiring of the MD-83's will be affective immediately. NEA has retired our single Concorde due to fuel prices. These aircraft have been put up on the market at a discount price, planes will be sold first come-first serve, starting with airlines from the World alliance. If no buyers are found within two days, the aircraft will be opened up for sale to the general public. We also intend on cutting 5% of our flights by grounding these aircraft.

The prices for the 737-800 will be 56,500,000 each, they are all being sold as-is/where-is, they each are at least 99% or greater.
The prices for the Md-83's will be 15,500,000 each, which are all in 100% condition.
The Concorde is being listed at 150,000,000 and is in over 99.5% condition.

Also, NEA has taken order of our first Boeing 767-300ER, though this is the second time this aircraft has been in the fleet, it will stay in this time. Along with the 767, NEA's corporate division has taken order of its first Boeing BBJ aircraft.

NEA has also received its first Boeing 737-700ER.

NEA has sold their only 777-200ER to Canadian Northwest Air for 165 million dollars, we have also scrapped the sole ERJ-145 that was part of the SJA merger. We have sold three Boeing 707-320C's from our historic fleet, making the new total 4 aircraft, and one Boeing 737-200adv, was sold to Fly Hawaii AIr

NEA is in the talks with British Airways Virtual Cargo about a possible merger. In this merge, North Eastern Airways will take control of BAVC. Management from BAVC will take control of North Eastern Cargo (NEC), NEA's cargo division. This merge would compliment NEC's fleet, because both airlines use the same types of aircraft, with the DC-10-30F being the main aircraft used in both companies. There are only a few airbuses, that would conflict with NEC's fleet, which since being in small numbers, would be retired when the possible merger is completed.

NEA offically announces that KPHX, Pheonix Sky Harbor airport, has offically become our first west coast hub. PHX, will serve all of the West coast, and most of the East Coast as well. This will mark the beginning of NEA's pressence being increased over all of the US, with the opening of seven hubs or focus cities. Along with PHX, KBNA, Nashville Intl Airport, has offically become one of NEA's hubs.

There will not be much of a conflict with fleets, for the most part we both opperate Boeing fleets, but BAVC does have a few airbus A300's that wont fit in with the fleet. Possible aircraft that may be sold has yet to be talked about, but we will try to stream line our fleets as much as possible.

We are currently looking into a Boeing 737-700ER or possibly a Boeing 757-200 that is ETOPS certified.

Press Release: July 17th, 2008

North Eastern Airways (NEA, S.M.-NAW) is proud to announce two major additions to our airline. We have spent time on this decision, taking into account many factors and the fact that we are trying to simplify our fleets. This order is for up to twenty-two aircraft of two manufactures, Boeing and Embraer.

The Boeing order is for twelve aircraft. The main part of this order is for ten Boeing 777's. This order includes seven 777-300ER's and three 777-200LRF's for our cargo division. Two of the seven 777-300ER's will be used in Japan for Northern Japan Airways along with 757-300's 767-400's, and 787's. This order could possibly kill our 747-400ER's and 747-400ERF's from our fleet. We currently have a fleet of two 777-200LR's and a fleet of three 777-200LRF's, so the addition of ten more will fit in our fleet perfectly because of commonality between all three types. The other two aircraft of this order will be Boeing 717-200's that will be used with North Eastern Express.

The other order for up to nine aircraft is for Embraer's ERJ-145XR, 170 and 190 aircraft. It would include two Erj-145XR's, four 170's, and three 190. These aircraft will be used on low density flights from our hubs to small cities of the midwest and west with North Eastern Express.

The first 777-300ER has been delivered to our hub at KPIT and is registered N2303NE along with the first E170 and two E190 registered N3501NE and N3601NE and N3602NE respectivly, all at KSTL.

With these orders, you may possibly see the retirement of the BAE 146-300 from our fleet and the Boeing 747-400ER along with the 747-400ERF. There is a slight possibility that the BAE 146-300 will be converted to freighters. However the 747-400ER's and 747-400ERF's could be replaced with the 777 with no problems and would also simplify our fleet. They are more expensive to opperate and in the case of the 747-400ERF, the 777-200LRF can actually carry more for less money! We however will keep a small fleet of two 747-400ERF's.

This order would bring our current fleets to: two 777-200LR's, six 777-200LRF's, seven 777-300ER's, six 717-200's, three ERJ-145XR, four 170's, and three 190's.

Press Release: August 7th, 2008

North Eastern Airways (NEA, S.M.- NAW) is sad to announce that the 747-400 days are now limited with us. A date has been finally set for the retirement of our two last 747-400ER aircraft. They have gradually been phased out of services, and on August 19th, 2008 they will cease operations completely. The last flights will be the ones they flew the most on. N2201NE will fly NEA4025 between Pittsburgh and London Heathrow then NEA4026 back to Pittsburgh. N2202NE will fly NEA4015 from Pittsburgh to Athens Greece then will fly NEA4016 back to Pittsburgh. Both Flights will land at the same time using Runways 10L and 10C.

NEA4016 will leave Athens approx. one hour before NEA4026. The Two are set to arrive around 4:30Pm, and will then taxi to a ramp. Where once there, the passengers will be deplaned, and bused to the terminal or will stay at the ramp and take part in a Ceremony open to the public and to all staff of North Eastern Airways. The 19th of August will not be a sad day, but a day filled of joy and a new beginning for North Eastern Airways as we reveal our second Boeing 777-300ER aircraft that was the aircraft chosen to replace the 747's.

The Plane will arrive after the two flights land and will taxi to the ceremony and will be put on display with the 747’s. We chose the 777-300ER to replace the 747-400ER because of it being a more environmentally friendly aircraft compared with the 747. There will be a slight decrease in capacity, but in the long run will be a benefit. Though we are retiring the 747 in a eight days, it won’t be out of our fleet for very long. We are still the launch customer for the Brand new 747; the 747-8I and 747-8F which will be delivered in the mid-late part of 2009.

Also in NEA news, we are announcing that our fleet of seven BAE 146-300 aircraft that operated for North Eastern Express have been retired and are currently up for sale and 4.5 million each. Their replacement aircraft will be the New E190 aircraft and Boeing 717 aircraft that have been delivered in the last few weeks.
