Status Of Kingfishers A332's?

Tue Feb 05, 2013 12:38 pm

I noticed the Kingfisher 332's stored engineless at ZRH (VT-VJO & VT-VJP) now have engines on them again. Is someone taking delivery of them? What is the status of the other Kingisher 332's? Thanks for any info or updates.

VT-VJL is now EI-EWH, being prepared for Arik Air in Bordeaux.
VT-VJN is now EI-EWG, same status

Hopefully they hold on to these longer than the last A330 they had.

Thanks for the reply. It looks like Arik Air is now going to have at least 3 ex-Kingfisher A332's. I was secretly hoping Brussels Airlines would pick up a couple but I guess the price was too high given the fact these are relatively new aircraft.

Brussels Airlines has only 1 A330 on order and the lucky frame will be OO-SFU (currently in storage at ZRH).
