Australia just opened a new Airline business.

Postby Paphitis » Thu Nov 26, 2020 6:17 pm

All Australian owned and funded by the taxpayer operating just a single A319 for now with plans for expansion.

The airline is called Jihad Airways.

The first service operated yesterday between Canberra and Tehran.

There were only 3 passengers. The cost of the airfare was $0 and we also managed to bring an Australian Citizen home.

Did it only have 3 seats on the aircraft and the rest was for additional fuel tanks? :D

Is this a joke? :D

Yes,

3 seats,

one for the pilot, one for the co-pilot and one for an air stewardess.

If there were anymore than that, Jihad airways would fill up with terrorists on their way to Australia.

Funded by the Australian tax payer.

So which of the original 3 going to Tehran remained there to make room for an Aussie to fly back to Australia. :wink: :D

It's one of the Government's Special Planes for Government Officials and the Intelligence Services.

It's one below our Air Force Fleet of VIP aircraft - Air Force 1. It's parked permanently on the RAAF Apron as Canberra is a RAAF Base. It's unmarked though and it's a Ghost Plane. It might be capable of Air to Air Refuelling.

ASIO, and CIA and maybe even MOSSAD might have been on board too as the Israelis were part of this. The 3 terrorists are very high up on Israel's wanted list.

So, question is, maybe Gilbert was a spy and a very important person for Australia.

There is an A330 MRTT which is our Air Force One - Our PM
A Fleet of B737 BBJ - also for our PM, Cabinet
Dassault Falcons - also for our PM

Then there is an A319 which they describe as "special mission", and other non descript airline stuff :lol:

And there is a fleet of Challengers operated by a private contractor which is also on PM stabd by and also for Head of State (Queen Elizabeth) and important foreign dignitaries.

Don't you understand! Geesh!

The 3 Iranian terrorists were taken on a holiday to Tehran and we bought back an Aussie Academic. Every airline has to start somewhere. :lol:

We are just very nice people here in Australia.

Dp you really think so Max?

The terrorists have more chance of going to Cyprus than they do Australia with our Border Controls and surveillance the way it is. :wink:

My understanding is that the plane is owned by the Government - ASIO and ASIC in particular. But that's just a guess. Government never divulges such information.

It's not on any register.

here is a picture of it. Looks like Merkel popped in for a visit as well. :mrgreen:
