After its first aircraft was spotted in photos just over a month ago, the new North American airline Avelo Airlines has just released a video officially presenting its color scheme, through the process of painting an airplane itself.
The first aircraft had been photographed in the Indianapolis airport courtyard. In the images, in the midst of a lot of snow accumulated due to the blizzards that hit the United States, it was possible to see the painting scheme applied to the Boeing 737-800 with registration number N803XT.
Now, in the video you watched above, published yesterday, March 31, on Avelo’s YouTube channel, it is possible to notice that the painted aircraft is already another Boeing 737-800, now with the registration N802XT.
In publishing the recording, the airline describes: “Surprise! Our plane reveal is here. See how it comes to life in this behind the scenes video. ”
This 737 was manufactured in 2005 and delivered to Turkish Airlines, where it flew until the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic air crisis last year, according to data from Airfleets. It was then stocked and, in December, passed to Xtra Airways, a charter airline that was purchased by Avelo to streamline the process of starting operations at Avelo.
The previously revealed N803XT was manufactured in 2006 and also delivered to Turkish. Similarly, it was stocked in mid-2020, but was transferred directly to Avelo last February.
In addition to these two jets, the PlaneSpotters portal indicates that another 737-800, with registration number N801XT, will also be part of the new airline’s fleet. This was produced in 2007 and passed through the Egyptian AMC and the Dutch ArkeFly, JetairFly and TUI Netherlands, all three in the same group. Finally, it was stocked at the beginning of the pandemic and passed to Xtra Airways in July last year, confirming that it will also fly on Avelo.
The N801XT had been operating several Xtra charters in the United States in the past few weeks, but it was shipped to San Bernardino, California on the 26th. The place is well known for aircraft maintenance and painting processes, so possibly the 737 now will also win the colors of Avelo.
