Latam Airlines plans to add two more aircraft from the Brazilian Airbus A320ceo family, which will be leased to Ireland-registered leasing company Vermilion Aviation. Both planes had previously flown with Bahrain-based Arab company Gulf Air, but withdrew from operations during the outbreak.
The aircraft in question are as follows:
-PR-TQB (msn 4827): A 10-year-old jet previously flown by Gulf Air as the A9C-AM. He is currently undergoing repairs in Abu Dhabi.
-PR-TQC (msn 4860): Flying A9C-AO on Gulf Air and 10 years old parked in Abu Dhabi, it is already undergoing pre-delivery repairs.
Delivery date has not been confirmed yet, but sources in Abu Dhabi say it will be soon.
Out of curiosity, Latham also predicted access to the operation of a jet with PR-TQA registration, however, plans changed during the outbreak and the aircraft in question became part of the Avianca Columbia ship.
