LONDON – Sunclass Airlines’ first Airbus A330neo was spotted in Shannon Airport, Ireland, earlier this week, with enthusiasts acquiring photos of the jet.
OY-VKO started out its life testing as F-WWYY, with the aircraft being around 1.7 years old. The aircraft was originally supposed to be taken up by XL Airways France, but this didn’t come to fruition.
The delivery slot was then transferred over to Starlux Airlines, who didn’t take it up either. Then, the third time lucky, Airbus delivered the carrier to Sunclass Airlines.
On September 16, the aircraft was transferred from Toulouse to Shannon Airport for its subsequent repaint into the glorious yet simple orange and white livery.
It is understood that this will be the only neo they will be taking at this present time, according to data from Planespotters.net.
The airline has one A330-200 and one A330-300, as well as nine A321 aircraft too.
As you can see above, the photos were taken by Leah O Carroll, an avid photographer from Limerick, Ireland. Click below to follow her on her respective social media:
