An update on some Preighters:AirHub Airlines
9H-ZMK (A340-300, ex TN – 2005 build). Started in SQQ then operated a few sectors between VNO, RIX and KUN. Presumably training flights or certification work.AirX Charter
9H-BIG (A340-300, ex UL – 2000 build). Operating mostly HKG-ANC-RFD-ANC-HKG.Air Atlanta Icelandic
Three Airbus A340s joined the fleet from AirX Charter:
TF-LFC, (A340-600, 2003 build, originally delivered to IB as EC-IOB). AirX Charter who had operated her since the start of the year. TF-LFC has been operating a few sectors between XCR and HKG.https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/51659060438/
TF-MFC, (A340-600, 2003 build, originally delivered to IB as EC-INO. Does not appear to have entered service yet.
TF-NFC, (A340-300, 1998 build, originally delivered to AF as F-GLZN). Also has not entered service yet.AlisCargo Airlines
Both EI-GWA and EI-GWB (B777-200, ex-SQ) are doing MXP-HKG-MXP rotations, just like at the last update. GetJet Airlines
LY-LEO (A330-300, ex CI – 2006 build). Seems to be based in DEL and is operating a variety of flights such as DEL-DAC-DEL, DEL-HAN-DEL, DEL-MUC-DEL and DEL-MST-CCU-HKG-CCU-DEL.HiFly
CS-TQP (A330-300 - 1998 build). DEL-BCN-DEL, DEL-HAN-DEL, DEL-MST-DELHiFly Malta
9H-HFA (A330-300, ex-SA - 2017 build). Still reliably plying the HKG-ANC-JFK-ANC-HKG route, just like last update.
9H-TAJ (A330-300, ex-SQ - 2013 build). HKG-ANC-LAX-ANC-HKG. Visited FAI also at one point a few days ago.
9H-FOX (A340-300, ex-EK – 1997 build). As pointed out by another user a few days ago, it’s been doing LIS-HKG-AKL-SCL-LIS rotations. Very cool route and it was the first A340 to operate into Auckland since TN's last flight at the end of 2019.
9H-JAI (A340-300, ex-EK – 1998 build). At the start of last month it was mainly doing HAN-KIX-LAX-KIX-HAN rotations. More recently some BLR-ESB-JFK-LIS-BLR rotations but as of 2021-10-17it’s now in storage (or maintenance?) in AMM.
9H-SOL (A340-300, ex-IB – 2003 build). Something a bit different: it’s been flying to Antarctica! Flying two missions from CPT. Not sure exactly which Antarctic airfield it used, but Troll Airfield (Norway) and Novolazarevskaya Station (Russia) both look consistent with the FlightRadar24 data.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_Airfieldhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novolazar ... ovo_Runway

According to the client, an explicit search was made this time for an Airbus A340, as it can transport the required volume of equipment, food and fuel in just two flights. For example, the Boeing 757 would have had to make more rounds, which would ultimately have resulted in higher costs.
9H-SUN (A340-300, ex-UL – 2000 buld). Same as last month: lots of ICN-ANC-LCK-ICN-HAN-ICN rotations.MalethAero
9H-BFS (A330-200, ex-JJ – 2002 build). Alternating between HAN-ICN-LAX-ICN-HAN and HAN-ICN-YEG-ICN-HAN rotations. For the first half of October it was running mainly LGG-JFK-LGG-BLR-DEL-LGG.
9H-JFS (A330-200, ex-JJ – 2002 build). As pointed out by someone else earlier, RFD-FAI-ICN-HAN-ICN-FAI-RFD.
9H-LFS (A330-200, ex-KC330 prototype/demonstrator – 2007 build). In early October it was operating exclusively HKG-KBP-JFK-KPB-HKG. More recently HAN-FAI-RFD/DFW/YMX then returning.9H-MFS (A330-200, ex-JJ – 2005 build). Largely the same as 9H-LFS.
9H-NHS (A340-600, ex-VS – 2006 build). Most of October was spent running BOH-JFK-BOH. There was a single BOH-SZX-LAX-BOH rotation as well as lots of trips up to CWL, which were presumably training flights. Nice to see such a beautiful aircraft still earning it’s keep. I stood right next to it at LDE a few years ago, not really expecting it to fly again.
9H-PGS (A340-600, ex-EY – 2009 build). Exclusively BOH-FOC-BOH flights which I believe are PPE missions.
9H-PPE (A340-600, ex-VS – 2006 build). It did a few BOH-FOC-BOH rotations in October, but not nearly as many as 9H-NHS. Also did a few flights to CWL.European Cargo
G-ECLB (A340-600, ex-VS – 2006 build). Just a single flight around BOH – presumably a test flight.
G-ECLC (A340-600, ex-VS – 2006 build). BOH-FOC-BOH.San Marino Executive Aviation
T7-ULS (A330-300, ex-DK – 2000 build). Still seems to be operating for ULS Cargo, based in ISL/IST. Lots of IST-DAC-HAN-DAC-IST rotations, sometimes with IST-ZAG-IST tagged on at the end.SmartLynx Malta
9H-SMA (A330-300, ex-CZ – 2008 build). HKG-ANC-RFD-ANC-HKG.
9H-SMC (A330-300, ex-CZ – 2008 build). RIX-CMB-KIX-ANC-JFK-RIX circumnavigations.
9H-SMD (A330-300, ex-SQ – 2013 build). HKG-ANC-ORD-ANC-HKG.
9H-SME (A330-300, ex-CZ – 2008 build). RIX-ALA-HKG-RIX-ZAZ-RIX. Sometimes the stop in ALA seems to get skipped. Wamos Air
EC-MAJ (A330-200, ex-UX - 2009 build). For much of October it was doing ZAZ-YYZ-ZAZ but then switched to ZAZ-JFK-ZAZ. Did a couple of runs to SZX and MEX also. Like I said last month, presumably this is for Inditex.
EC-MTT (A330-200, ex-AB - 2002 build). TLL-SGN-ALA-TLL-JFK-TLL. Also doing TLL-RFD-TLL intermittently.
EC-MTU (A330-200, ex-AB - 2002 build). TLL-SZX-TLL-JFK-TLL.
EC-NCK (A330-200, ex-CZ - 2007 build). Converted to a Preighter config in September. Since then it has started TLL-HAN-TLL-RFD-TLL rotations.
EC-NOF (A330-300, ex-D7 – 2006 build). Transferred to Wamos at the beginning of October from Thai AirAsia X. Has since mainly been flying ZAZ-YYZ-ZAZ
EC-NOG (A330-300, ex-D7 – 2006 build). Transferred to Wamos two days ago and had it’s delivery flight WOE-MAD.
