White Airways is a Portuguese charter airline headquartered in Porto Salvo, Oeiras.[1] It mainly operates charter flights from Lisbon Humberto Delgado Airport on behalf of tour operators as well as on lease on behalf of other airlines.

History[edit]

The airline was founded in 2005, originally being named Yes - Linhas Aereas Charter and owned by TAP Portugal (75%) and Abreu Group (25%). In late 2006, the airline was acquired by the Omni Aviation Group and renamed White Airways.[2]

In May 2016, White Airways phased out their last Airbus A310-300 as one of the last European operators of the type.[3]
