Green Airlines: Chalair flew empty from Paderborn to Sylt

Last Friday the ticket seller Green Airlines let empty seats fly from Paderborn to Sylt. There was not a single passenger on board the Chalair chartered Beechcraft 1900D.

The F-HETS was flown in from Caen (France) around 685 kilometers away on Friday. There were no passengers on board this positioning flight. The Green Airlines charter flight from Paderborn to Westerland (Sylt) could have been saved in the interests of the environment, given the “green” image that ticket sellers have, because there were no passengers at all.

The Beech 1900D took off for Sylt without a single passenger on board. The return flight to Paderborn had five travelers. This type of machine would have had a capacity for 19 passengers. This results in a load factor of zero percent for the outbound flight and around 26 percent for the return flight for the charter circuit on Friday.

Green Airlines is not an airline, but a ticket seller who charter machines and markets the tickets on its own account. People are particularly “green” and advertise “climate-fair flying”. However, long positioning flights and, more recently, empty flights between Paderborn and Sylt do not match this claim.
