Couple Of Questions: Who Ops PH-ITA And EC-IOR

Sun Oct 19, 2003 7:21 pm

Hi there,

I have a couple of questions about two registrations I saw at Manchester yesterday:

1) To which airline does PH-ITA belong? What aircraft is it? (I could not see). It looked all white with no titles and it was parked near G-VOLH (MYT 321) and the MON DC-10. This possibly indicates temporary storage; and

2) Hola Air operated EC-IOR into MAN yesterday. But from whom did the carrier acquire the aircraft and when?

Thanks for your help,

James.

PH-ITA is a Dutch Registration. I guess it belongs (belonged??) either to Transavia or DutchBird.

Yeah, I know PH- is a Dutch registration. PH-ITA is not in my 2003/4 JP book, so I am curious about the previous owner and, more importantly, the current owner.

Thanks for your replies.

Does anyone know to which airline PH-ITA will be leased or otherwise? It seems a little strange that it was an ex. IB or FUA beast only to be reregistered PH-ITA and stored at MAN.

It was registered as an Iberia 757.

That site says it is stored at MAN and is registered as Unknown.
