Trade Air takes delivery of A320


Croatian charter and cargo operator Trade Air has taken delivery of an Airbus A320 aircraft. The jet arrived in Zagreb from Lisbon on Saturday and is registered 9A-BTG. It previously operated for SATA International and is eighteen years old. The aircraft is equipped with CFM56-5A3 engines. It will now undergo scheduled maintenance, exterior and interior refurbishment, while its capacity will be increased to 180 seats in an all-economy class layout. The aircraft is expected to enter into service in June and is planned for ACMI operations. Trade Air currently operates one Embraer E120 aircraft and two Fokker 100 jets, one of which will be wet-leased to Croatia Airlines in June.

    1. It says it will operate on behalf of other airlines so probably not in Croatia.
