MIAMI – Lithuanian charter and wet-lease carrier, Heston Airlines (HN) which came into operations earlier this year, is already expecting to commence wide-body operations soon.

The country of Lithuania has a long history of charter and leasing airlines that have come and gone. Some of which exist today are Avion Express (X9), Getjet (GW), and now HN.

Heston currently operates three Airbus A320-200, one of which (LY-FJI) made its first flight a few days ago and the other being LY-VUT and LY-NZL. The airline recently announced that it plans to bring in the Airbus A330-200F (Zero LOPA) in quarter 3 of 2021 to focus and meet ACMI and charter cargo demands.
