The aircraft will be returned to its lessor, who would already be negotiating with the airline TAP Air Portugal for the future of the same.
The last plane to fly for Air Berlin, the German airline that went bankrupt and stopped operating at the end of last October, is currently arriving to Brazil at the hands of its lessor.
The Airbus A330-200 and registration D-ALPH, flew today from the Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), in Germany, towards the Rio de Janeiro-Galeão International Airport (GIG). The aircraft will be returned to the lessor and then it will receive painting jobs.
The airline TAP Air Portugal currently has great demand on its flights to North America, and due to a delay in the delivery of the new Airbus A330-900neo, it would be interested in acquiring one or two A330-200, of which one would be the D-ALPH plane that flew for Air Berlin.
If the agreement is carried out, the aircraft will receive a new configuration of seats to adapt to the needs of TAP, which flies with two classes, Executive and Economic.
