Ready for take off ... Adria’s new A319Adria Airways’ second Airbus A319 arrived on Tuesday afternoon from Hamburg. The aircraft had already been utilised by Wednesday, operating scheduled flights mostly within Western Europe, although the aircraft has also visited Priština. The Airbus’ first revenue flight with Adria was to Frankfurt. The A319 has received the registration S5-AAR.
The latest Airbus A319 is the second for Adria within the last 2 weeks, with all aircraft of this type now delivered to the Slovenian national carrier. The airline now has 14 aircraft in its fleet, though an Airbus A320 is set to leave later this year while a Bombardier CRJ900 is expected to arrive. According to Adria’s CEO, Tadej Tufek, this is the airline’s biggest fleet modernisation push to date.
The Airbus A319 is becoming (or will become) a prominent fixture in the fleet of many EX-YU airlines including Croatia Airlines and B&H Airlines.
