Ciao to all.
This time my "battle" is for an Italian airline. I decided to be 100% Italian and this is the first time since i joined Wings900, in 2009.
After the release of British Airways A320, Aer Lingus A320, SAS B737-800WL, Novair A321neo i WANT neos fleet
"YOU WANT Charter?"
"YES, I WANT!".
I don't know if there are enough collectors interested in neos
fleet or i am alone, but even if i should be alone i will struggle to obtain it.
is a charter Italian airline founded in the year 2001 by a joint venture among Alpitour and TUI group: in fact their B737-800's had TUI livery, light blue fuselage, white belly and the TUI logo on the tail fin.
The first flight dated 2002 with B737-800WL I-NEOS "Cittą di Milano", since 2004 neos
was took over by Alpitour becoming completely independent and starting intercontinental flights.
operates charter/leisure flights from its bases in Milan "Malpensa" and Verona "Villafranca" towards holiday destinations in Europe, China, Caribbean, Africa, Mexico, Maldive along with domestic flights.
Since 2017 long haul operations are performed by B787-9's, three in service and a fourth on order: the three B787-9 have a different, wonderful livery from the B737-800's and the B767-300's.
The airline ordered four B737 MAX8's.
This is the current fleet:
6 B737-800 (4 with scimitar winglets and 2 with winglets)
2 B767-300WL (one leased to Arkia)
3 B787-9 (EI-NEO, EI-NEW, EI-NEU)
is one of the few airlines still flying in Italy, along with Alitalia, Blue Panorama/Blue-express, Ernest, Air Italy, Air Dolomiti.
It's time to have neos
fleet in 1:500 scale.
