Taipei Taoyuan round up – January 2019

Posted by on February 19, 2019

Not much from me this time, as I was away for nearly the whole month.

Away from the SINGAPORE AIRLINES B787-10s that dominate the list below, there are a couple worthy of mention.

First up was HS-VKC A320 of THAI VIETJET AIR which kicked off the year in some style for me on 1-JAN. I later discovered that it was also in (making its 1st visit) on 28-DEC-2018.

JUNEYAO AIRLINES B787-9 B-208A was the other one that caught my eye. It made a 1st visit on 24-Jan and had been a daily visitor ever since.

I mentioned last time that we still haven’t had any MAXs here. That was incorrect as I’d forgotten that THAI LION AIR occasionally operate their 9 MAXs in to TPE. HS-LSH, LSI, and LSK have all been in.

News:
CHINA AIRLINES [CI/CAL]
B-18312 A330-302 (0769) has become LY-GEO with GetJet Airlines and departed TPE in January.
B-18316 A330-302 (0838) I reported last time that this was in the CAL hangars stripped of paint. It wasn’t a lease return and has since gone back into service (on 1-Feb).

SINGAPORE AIRLINES [SQ/SIA]
Started using B787-10s into TPE in January. The aircraft operates on [SIA876/877] which is a lunchtime arrival.

MALINDO AIR [OD/MXD]
Have added 3 extra flights a week from Kuala Lumpur (KUL). Extra flights are on Tues, Wed, and Sat. Operated by B737-800s.

PEACH AVIATION [MM/APJ]
Parent group ANA is to merge PEACH with VANILLA AIR [JW/VNL] and as a result PEACH will take over VANILLA’s services into TPE.

Interesting visitors.

Others:
HS-STB B747-441 (917/24956): I read a report in Air-Britain that this has been broken up after storage here. It’s still sat in the north-western corner of the airport. It’s minus some parts but is still in one piece.

CreditsFR24, me.
