Neos fleet.

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.


neos 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.
neos 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)




























neos 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.

Re: Neos fleet.

I think that the B787-9 is a wonderful airplane but, among the many already flying, few are masterpieces of beauty:

Re: Neos fleet.

I would like to have the 787 in my collection. A 737-800 release would be nice.
A 767 release wouldn't be nice in my opinion, since the 767 is being retired.

Re: Neos fleet.

Well, to you. It would be a totally wasted release for me, as it would be almost a "Yesterday" model.

Neos had three 767s:

I-NDOF: currently leased to Arkia, with white livery and Arkia titles
I-NDMJ: seems to be active, full Neos colors
I-NDDL: converted to freighter, going to Atlas Air (probably Amazon Prime Air)

So basically, only one 767 in Neos colors still active, and I really think Neos might soon offload this one to their new ACMI sub-brand, Moonflower.

I would much prefer the 787 to be released

Re: Neos fleet.

I-NDDL was probably only some rather shot-term use since 2015 (even with a break); the other two are in the fleet since 2005 and 2006.

For my taste: A 737-800 with normal winglets first. If that sell's well, the Dreamliner. 737 with scimitars can wait for now, as there's also a MAX 8 on order.
