It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we have a Hainan Airlines Airbus A330-300 departing Dublin Airport as it heads back to its home of Bejing Capital Airport in China.
Hainan Airlines operates a fleet of eight Airbus A330-200 in its widebody haul fleet. The airline also operates the Airbus A330-300, Boeing 787-8 and Boeing 787-9 in its widebody fleet.
These feed into the Hainan Airlines hubs at Beijing–Capital Airport, Haikou, Xi’an and Shenzhen.
This aircraft – B-5979 – joined the Hainan Airlines fleet in January 2015, where it has remained since being placed there by GECAS. The aircraft has been focused on domestic operations operating from its Bejing base to Guangzhou over the past seven days at the time of writing.
More Airplane Art next week!
