    Bombardier CL605 EI-WFI was delivered from Montreal to Shannon 2nd June for operation by Westair for its owner. It carries the name "Wind Force One' the same as the Lear jet 45 EI-WFO which it replaces.

    A320 EI-EZR was delivered from the USA via Shannon 3/6 for Italian operator Meridiana Fly formed from the recent merger of Meridiana and Eurofly. Some years ago this aircraft was registered EI-CUK for a short time with another Italian carrier, Volare.

    CargoItalia MD11F EI-EMS was delivered from Singapore to Milan via Shannon for paperwork 4/6. The ex Finnair aircraft was converted to a freighter in Singapore and like many other Italian airlines CargoItalia favors operating its aircraft on the Irish register.

    This is not correct - most definitely not wet leased. While many of the airliners flown by Italian carriers on the Irish register are leased from international leasing companies with offices in Ireland airlines in other countries airlines also lease aircraft from these companies but in the main fly them on their own country's nation register - Russia may be an exception where most western aircraft are flown on the Bermudan register some Irish registered airliners are operated as well. Thus Italy is an exception to the norm.
    Gemini Air Cargo ceased operations in 2008

    Just to give some idea of the number of aircraft operated by Italian airlines on the Irish register the following are reasonably accurate

    Alitalia/Alitalia Express/Air One 69 out of a fleet of 105
    Meridiana Fly 14 out of a fleet of 34
    CargoItalia 3 out of a fleet of 3
    Mistral Air 7 out of a fleet of 7
    Air Italy 4 out of a fleet of 13
    Livingston 3 out of a fleet of 6
    Windjet 11 out of a fleet of 11
    Blue Panorama 11 out of a fleet of 12

    I frequently see EI-WFI operated by Westair in both Shannon and Dublin. Who is the passenger?
