Do we know where (if anywhere) the 8x ATRs will head once VA is done with them? Do they have other airlines lined up or will they just be stored at NSN for now?

Storage. Nelson isn't exactly on the way to anywhere.

Why Nelson though.

Interestingly there appears to be no sign of any up for sale yet or lease, and there are a variety of competing aircraft including the Malaysia birds.

It seems that the lessor, Avation, has them advertised for lease on its website: http://www.avation.net/aircraft_available.html.

As for the Malaysian aircraft, six are headed to Nam Air in Indonesia, so not sure if there are any more than that heading out of the Firefly/MASWings fleet. In any case, there seems to be strong demand for ATRs in India with their new regional connectivity scheme, so I wouldn't be at all surprised to see some of the ex-Virgin birds go there.

The very same link shows VA's A320 VH-YUD (MSN1922) as being for sale, available May 2018.

That's interesting. I wonder if they'd even bother trying to sell the other one, FNP. It's very old and not reliable.

VH-YFY flew first flight 15 July. Delivery about 1 month.
