Reborn Air Djibouti's First Boeing 737 Gets Airborne

August 14, 2016

The first aircraft to be operated by the revived Air Djibouti left Cardiff airport in Wales on 9 August, with the Boeing 737-400 sporting the operator's red and white livery.

 

Flightglobal reports that the aircraft was flown to Djibouti on 11 August following stopovers at Olbia airport, Sardinia and Luqa International in Malta.

 

Flight Fleets Analyzer records the Boeing 737-400 – which is owned by Cardiff Aviation company VVB Aviation Malta – as powered by CFM International CFM56 engines, first flown in 1990 and configured with 167 seats.

 

Cardiff Aviation chairman Bruce Dickinson says Air Djibouti could soon add a BAe 146 or Avro RJ regional jet on wet-lease.

 

From late this year, the carrier will also operate a Boeing 767-200ER, on services between its East African home nation and London Gatwick.
