New widebody Airbus for CSA Czech AIrlines

CSA Czech Airlines will add their second widebody to the fleet. The Airbus A330-200 will be registered as OK-GBB, and has been leased from Air Transat for the winter season 2018/19.

The airplane (MSN 427, manufactured at 2001) started as G-OJMB for JMC Air Services charters (and leased e.g. to Garuda) and went to Thomas Cook UK together with JMC Air. It has been re-registered as C-GTSI for Air Transat at 2011. Travel Service Poland has ACMI-leased it for last winter and it returns this winter, with Czech crews and under Czech registration.

As the CSA spokesman Daniel Šabík confirmed to, OK-GBB will fly from Warsaw from November 2018 until March 2019 and will serve long haul routes, e.g. Punta Cana, Zanzibar or Krabi in Travel Service paint scheme. The configuration shall remain the same as with Air Transat - 12 business and 333 economy seats.

The airplane is scheduled to be ferried to Prague early next week and will continue to Warsaw through Ostrava after performing the steps necessary for entering the Czech registry. The PRG-OSR-WAW training flight is necessary for finalising the training of enough pilots for this type.
