New airline plans transatlantic business flights

But the people behind Odyssey Airlines remain a mystery

Odyssey Airlines, a new British venture, is planning to step in where business-only airlines such as Silverjet failed. It has ordered 10 Bombardier CSeries passenger jets for its business flights between London City Airport and locations in the US including New York. Bombardier revealed six months ago that it had sold a set of 10 aircraft to a mystery anonymous customer, which it called an “unidentified European buyer”. The start-up is a challenge to British Airways, which flies twice-daily all-business flights on Airbus A318 aircraft from London City.
However, the people behind Odyssey remain a mystery. Apparently, the company was founded in September 2010, its director named as Adam Scott. But when contacted using an email address found on the company’s web domain, a person saying he was Adam Scott denied he knew anything about the project.
