"Garuda" B763 At ALC

Wed Feb 22, 2006 1:57 am

Spotted B763 in what appeared to be TUI colours but with Garuda Indonesia markings at ALC on Saturday.
Couldn't see the reg, but does anyone know what this aircraft is and what it was doing in ALC?

Its likely that it has come off short-term lease with Garuda as is now back to operating TUI flights. It would have been leased by the Indonesian carrier for Hajj trips during January.

I can imagine that the plane was leased to Garuda (probably for Hajj flights) and that it was returned back to Tompsonfly, now they are operating their regular flights with it but haven't removed the Garuda titels yet.

Use the spell check feature  Wink

Yes, it's an a/c that was leased from Thomsonfly to Garuda for the Hajj flights. It's now back with TOM, although they havent had time to take the Garuda stickers off  Wink
