Olympic Air takes delivery of the first Airbus A319 registered SX-OAJ in Athens today

Olympic Air took delivery of their first Airbus A319 registered SX-OAJ in ATH today. It arrived in full colors at 13:45L, having been painted in SNN (Shannon, Ireland) just yesterday. This is an ex Mexicana plane (c/n 3905) not taken up, that was ferried from XFW (Hamburg, Germany) to SNN in order to be painted (see post). The strange with this flight is that on the FMC of the plane the callsign of the flight was AEE001, which is an Aegean Airlines callsign. On the radio communications though it used callsign "Olympic SX-OAJ". Upon arrival it went directly into the Olympic Air Hangar. The plane is leased from RBS Aviation Capital.
