It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art.
This week, we have the Aer Lingus Airbus A320 in the retro paintwork arriving at its home base of Dublin Airport, with a Rugby Jet in the background.
Aer Lingus is an “Airbus only” operator, flying the Airbus A320 and Airbus A321 in its short-haul fleet. In its long haul fleet, it operates the Airbus A321LR, Airbus A330-200 and Airbus A330-300, with Aer Lingus Regional (operated by Storbart Air) operating ATR42-600 and ATR72-600 turboprops.
This aircraft – EI-DVM “St Colman” has remained active through these times. It joined the Aer Lingus fleet just under 10 years ago, remaining with the airline since them. It is configured in a single class layout for use on European routes that the aircraft operates on.
