I noticed that 9H-PGS (formally A6-EHK) has been flying a number of BOH-NQY-NQY-BOH flights today. Planespotters.net suggests that Maleth-Aero is the operator on a lease from European Aviation Group. 9H-PSI (formally A6-EHJ) is also due to be taken up by Maleth-Aero.

https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/9h-pgs

Any further info on who these may operate for?

I have lost track if A330-200 P2F conversions. Are these TK aircraft, I assume GE powered, good candidates?

TAP A330-200 CS-TOI will soon be retired and be flown to The Netherlands (Twente Airport) for scrapping.

It is the second prototype A330-200, first flown in 1997. Delivered to Austrian Airlines as OE-LAN in 1999, and picked up by TAP in 2007.
I wonder when people will understand:
Embraer 190 or simply E190, not ERJ-190. E-Jets are NOT ERJs!
Boeing 747-8, not Boeing 747-800. Same goes for 787.
Airbus A320, not Airbus 320.
Airbii does not exist.

What does the RAAF require an A340 for? Surely their A330 MRTT fleet could be used if they need something in this size.

Most likely the ferry date for TAP A330-200 CS-TOI to AELS Twente will NOT be published.
Some stupid idiot plane spotters went into the nature reserve surrounding the Twente Airport when the Qatar A340-600 arrived. Since then AELS isn't allowed to publish the flight dates in advance. So beware for regulations when spotting.

Its a wet lease - so the aircraft will most probably feature stickers, not a full Biman paint job.

They leased an A330-243 from Wamos Air before in 2017. So nothing new.

That would be my guess, unless it's recently had a heavy mx check.

She has been in storage for past four years. Not sure her condition now, most probably need a good spruce up. But glad to see her return to service, rather than being scrapped.

I'm somewhat surprised that they chose THR instead of MNL for this mx. I know that VS sends their A340s to MNL, so from a cost stand point MNL must be competitive. Of course very few airlines would choose THR over MNL, even if it is an option.

CCS-THR is a very “famous” route...
Even IR used to fly it via DAM, in the SP days ,
Albeit , short lived......
FWIW, it has absolutely nothing to do with capacity.

Surprising, but the Mahan base is at THR, so something of an A340 centre of excellence there.

I am sure you know of the "special relationship" that Iran and Venezuela enjoy... since the days of Chavez. This is not about costs...

Due to Iran embargo I think this old A342 could easily fly for IR .
