Interesting article by Simple Flying today, calls out 10 aircraft will return to the VA fleet. We have accounted for 8 - leaving 2. VOT/VUA/VUB are still in MEL, VOQ/VOR/VUD in ASP, VOS in BNE.

Also calls out that the A320s will move from VARA to VA .. does that mean VARA will just operate the F100s?

Side note: love the shot of the Split Scimitar winglet in the article!

A320s not moving, just being used on mainline routes again, still VARA operated.

YVC will re-enter service next week after quite some time. Last flight was ADL - BNE 22nd July 2020.

It will be replaced in HKG maintenance by YIJ

YIO will be next through XSP

FYI, both VUX and VUY will get up and running over the next couple of months. Both will obviously go through either HKG or XSP Heavy Maintenance. Obviously VUX will need a coat of paint too.

Am I right in saying that the financed/owned aircraft undergo maintenance in XSP, and leased aircraft in HKG? or does it depend on the lessor?

VUR will be back to operate for VA in the near future.

Not sure. I think itís just got to do with the timing of the maintenance plan more than anything else.
