  2. P2cargo flights in tawau expected to persist until year end though as usual subject to change anytime. Probably will be based on how long domestic feeder flights will remain disconnected from tawau seeing how we're on the third wave covid now.

  8. It looks like AirAsia X is on target to reduce their fleet - but I think they need to get rid of more planes because their flights have not resumed due to to Covid-19 not going away anytime soon. Under normal circumstances, they would have gone into liquidation. However, their owners seem to want to hold on....

  15. That is so true! That has also brought in some rare traffic into TWU which you probably thought impossible in the past, such as this - Harimau Malaya A330! Photo Credit: Lensa Aviasi Tawau
  16. So refreshing to see MH responding to demand as and when necessary nowadays 🙂 Who would have thought this possible pre-Covid ? Probably would have expected the more nimble and responsive Air Asia to have done the necessary instead .....
  17. The schedule has been updated until mid of april, still plenty of opportunity to catch her at TWU😊
  18. Looks like the next flight is due tomorrow and this coming Saturday. However nothing is loaded for next week.

  20. Thanks for the info, Jahur.😀 It is quite a surprise and rare occasion that MAB allowed wide body aircraft operations in TWU as this tiny airport doesn't really support and operate wide body movement. I guess they have pushed it really hard to make it happen and a dream comes true for the spotters like us in Tawau. Anyway, here is a photo captured by my friend Lensa Aviasi Tawau, enjoy!
  21. Apparently the a333p2cargo will be 2x weekly doing TWU-HKG(Wednesday & Saturday) until Airasia and Malaysia Airlines restores optimum inter SDK/TWU/LHD feeder flights to BKI. As of now the fruit and seafood export supply chain is affected due to passenger airline frequency cuts from Movement order and foreign demand somehow is also peaking up. Usually Seafood and fruits exports are on multiple inter Sabah flights onboard atr72, 737s and a320s passenger belly(Each flight carrying 1tonne or so) flying into BKI then from there transferred to a Maskargo A332Fs or AK A320s flights to Hong Kong. At Hong Kong some of the items will be split up and flown on another dedicated air freight towards China and Japan. Before covid in rare cases the Japanese sometimes charter Private Jets to Bki Twu or SDK to pick up the goods. 😂
  22. Probably the most exciting news today for avgeeks in Tawau, TWU just welcomed the first ever wide body aircraft A333 at the apron today, operated as MasKargo P2C flight KUL-> KCH-> TWU-> HKG. https://www.theborneopost.com/2021/03/20/maskargo-launches-inaugural-tawau-hong-kong-flight/ 採用超大型A330-300空巴 湖港直飛貨運航線開跑 (for those who can read mandarin) Photo Credit: The Borneo Post. Aircraft registration number: 9M-MTA (not Harimau Malaya, unfortunately). More photos to follow.😁
  23. I seem to recall MH already committing to a fleet renewal. Then and10t went and cancelled it all.
  24. If Aircastle is concerned, next two to go will be 9M-XXW MSN 1596, and 9M-XXI MSN 1411
  25. Knowing mab ill probably head to nowhere with no concrete plan and heading with just 3.5bil to operation to sustain operation to 2025.
  26. So we know 3 planes (XXP, XXY and XBD) have left the D7 fleet - they said they want to return 5 planes to the lessors.
  27. Not surprising as D7 cannot pay. AirAsia X’s quarterly net loss narrows to RM174m - https://www.theedgemarkets.com/article/airasia-xs-quarterly-net-loss-narrows-rm174m
  28. AirAsia X A330-343 9M-XXY MSN 1600 (stored at Nimes) & 9M-XXP MSN 1481 (stored at Toowoomba) have been repossessed by lessors.
