Trade Air acquires a new aircraft! Another, fourth A320 aircraft is coming to the fleet!
The 16-year-old TF-GOF aircraft (MSN 2569) will soon enter the Croatian Trade Air fleet. In the next few days, the plane will fly from Saudi Arabia to Europe, and the Croatian airline is currently arranging a place where the new A320 will undergo technical inspection, cabin redesign and other technical details before entering the fleet and the Croatian register bearing the 9A- BTK.
This aircraft should be ready for regular and ACMI operations of Trade Air from April, and just like other aircraft of this type, it will have a capacity of 180 seats in the passenger cabin.
The aircraft has spent 8 years in the fleet of Flynas, Saudi Arabia’s low-cost airline, and since October 2021 has been owned by Goshawka, a company specializing in aircraft leasing.
This is the third Airbus aircraft that Trade Air has taken into its fleet since the beginning of the pandemic. 9A-BTI arrived in the summer of 2020, 9A-BTJ before the 2021 season, and at the beginning of the summer flight schedule this year, 9A-BTK enters the fleet!
By taking over the fourth A320 aircraft, Trade Air will have a total of 7 aircraft in its fleet, with the smallest, the L410, being leased and flying on domestic routes within the Republic of Croatia.
The average age of the Trade Air fleet will decrease by one year with the arrival of the new A320 aircraft, from 22.28 to 21.3.
