CY A330's - Going?

Thu Oct 06, 2011 3:54 pm

Have heard that CY are getting rid of their A330's. Is it just a case of being too big an aircraft for them ? Are there any takers at this stage do we know ? Will miss them at LHR - another white A320 on its way then !

Any news would be good. Thanks

I heard somewhere that they were being leased to the RAF until November.

Yes, they are. According to CY spokesman, the first one will be returned to ILFC in December 2011 and the other one in January 2012.

CY will be leasing 2x A321 to substitute them - one in April 2012 and one in May 2012. Their plan is that the A321 can be used on high capacity routes but offer less seats than the A330 which was too big for the current CY operations.

Yes, the a/c are currently wet leased and shall not be carrying any more CY operations until they are returned back to ILFC.
