Small Planet Airlines is a European leisure carrier who at this time is operating in 5 markets: Lithuania, Poland, Italy and UK. We are headquartered in Lithuania, but our approach is to have separate localized strong operations in every country. We have air operator’s certificates (AOC) in Lithuania, Poland, and Italy, therefore we may do much more than any non-national airline, e.g. fly outside of the EU or employ local staff on-board.
We currently operate a fleet of 8 aircraft (6 Boeing 737-300, and 2 Airbus 320) and we have chartered to more than 120 destinations in Europe, MENA and Asia regions. In 2010 we transported nearly 0.4m passengers.
Full charter programs for tour operators with localized implementation (AOC, local crew, tailored on-board services); Aircraft wet lease service for airlines with tailored on-board services and possibility of custom livery; Ad hoc flights with immediate quoting and quick dispatch for anyone in need for a charter flight. Our ambition is to become a leading independent charter airline in Europe.
If I may, I would like to tell you what makes Small Planet Airlines a different charter airline company. In fact, it is a simple and powerful question that is rarely asked in boardrooms and aisles of airline companies: -Why not? We believe this is what the airline industry has missed. So we thought, why not to have a charter airline that chal- lenges airline business conventions in a big way? That has a real business model to offer lowest prices for European quality service? That truly behaves as a partner and goes the extra mile for its passengers? “Why?” is a bad question. “Why not?” is a great question. A question that opens airline business for change and a bit of fun. After all, this world has got enough of boring airlines already. Small Planet Airlines CEO, Vytautas Kaikaris2 3
