Texel's 737-800 Freighter arrives

Arriving into Hamilton this morning was Texel Air's Boeing 737-8B5(BCF) A9C-GWC, Vera, after its ferry flight, XLR 789, from Bahrain via Bangkok and Darwin. 

Texel Air began Auckland-Christchurch-Auckland services on the 3rd of April with Boeing 737-33A(SF) A9C-APC operating services for Parcelair. An earlier post from www.aircargonews.net reported that Texel Air Bahrain has deployed a Boeing B737-300 freighter to Auckland, New Zealand to operate charter services for Parceline Express, a subsidiary of Freightways and New Zealand Post. The freighter will fly on a Auckland – Christchurch – Auckland route. Texel Air Bahrain will continue the charter services until Texel Air NZ Ltd, established in February, commences operations with its B737-800BFC in May this year on the same route. Headquartered in Auckland, Texel Air NZ provides ACMI and charter services.

The new Boeing 737-800 freighter will undergo maintenance and certification checks with Hamilton Aero Maintenance before entering service.
