Dynamic Airways is a charter airline owned by private owners founded in 2010 which also operates many regular flights on behalf of other operators. The airline operates several used Boeing 767-200; and formerly operated McDonnell Douglas MD-88s.

History[edit]

Dynamic Airways was established by Dynamic Aviation in 2010, its first aircraft being a second-hand McDonnell Douglas MD-88 delivered a year before operations started in 2009. This was quickly followed by the acquisition of another MD-80 a year later, just before the airline officially started operations in early October, 2010 after receiving its Air Operator's Certificate.[1]

On November 2010, the airline started to operate for Direct Air. The company's first aircraft was re-painted in Direct Air livery and leased to Direct Air.[2]

As the airline approached its second year of operations, the first second-hand Boeing 767-200 was delivered to the airline, followed by the approval for the second MD-88 to take to the skies.[citation needed]

Not long after the purchase of the second McDonnell Douglas aircraft, Dynamic Airways announced a three-year partnership flying for Hoda Air Services in South Korea. The deal, which included a McDonnell Douglas MD-88 supported by a full crew, was the airline's first in Asia. The airline continued to expand when its first 767 entered service and the second was delivered, which was according to the airline available for 'ACMI wet lease, full charter and corporate shuttle programs for private and government organisations'.[3]

In March 2012, Direct Air temporarily suspended its operations and cancelled all charter flights, Direct Air subsequently filing for bankruptcy. It ceased operations completely shortly after, having been found to have racked up millions in debts. The MD-88 was returned to Dynamic Airways as a result. The third Boeing 767 was delivered to Dynamic Airways on March 6.[4] This 767 entered operations in early 2013.[citation needed]

Dynamic Airways operated a successful wet lease ACMI for an airline operation called EZjet. The wet lease operated regular flights from New York (JFK) to Georgetown Guyana (GEO) utilizing a B767-200 aircraft tail number N767DA. This operation ceased in 2012.

Dynamic Airways currently operates between Seoul's Incheon Airport and Saipan, as well as from New York's John F. Kennedy Airport to Guyana.

In the future, the airline is slated to focus on operations within the Japan and China markets. The airline also plans to start scheduled flights between New York (JFK) to Georgetown Guyana (GEO) by late June 2014.[5]
