Likely New Operators For Malev’s DHC8's?

Mon Mar 12, 2012 10:21 pm

There was a lot of discussion about the Malev B737NG. But not a lot about the DHC8's.

I spotted this on Gatwick Spotters List for 5th March.

HA-LQA DH8D (4054) parked at Sandefjord

HA-LQB DH8D (4057) parked at Innsbruck

HA-LQC DH8D (4057) parked at Sandefjord

HA-LQD DH8D (4064) parked at Sandefjord

Does anyone know if they are still parked, and who their new operators are likely to be.

Far as I know they are still parked up and not going to anyone just yet. They will definitely find a new home as they 3 of them were delivered in 2009 and 1 in 2008 so they're still practically new. I'd like to say where they will go (I hope Flybe!!!) but right now they can end up anywhere. Im sure in a couple weeks time they should should get some interest from an airline.

Still three parked at TRF. Not sure who owns them, as they were former SAS planes.

WestJet in Canada might find them useful...

A bit off-topic, but I couldn't find a recent thread mentioning it: it seems that all but one of MA's old 737-700s will continue their service life in Russia, with Transaero. HA-LOB, -LOI, -LOL, -LOP, -LOR and -LOS are destined for Transaero with the first ones supposed to be flying from April.

The 737-700 HA-LOA, which is in TLV, doesn't have a new owner yet, and neither have the 738s. The 736s will all be scrapped in Goodyear, AZ.

Not anymore it ain't, on Saturday it flew to DUB. I am certain it will end up going to Transaero like the others, probably very soon it will have a new reg given.

How old are those 736s? Pretty young to be scrapped I would have thought.
What a shame that they will not find a new lease of life with another airline

They were built in 2003. Yes I agree, such a waste when today you still have aircraft flying which were built in the late 60's, early 70's yet these are off to be parted out. At least quite a bit of the Malev fleet will continue to grace the skies for a few years to come yet though.

Actually, some of the ex U2 B737-700's were/are being scrapped at Kemble as well.

It is not just the Malev B737NG.
