Olympic Air took delivery of the second wetleased Q400 registered G-FLBD today in Athens

Olympic Air took delivery of their second wet leased Dash-8 Q400 from Flybe, registered G-FLBD (c/n 4259). The plane was ferried on August 9th from BHX (Birmingham, UK) to NWI (Norwich, UK) for painting in full Olympic Air colors. Yesterday it was ferried back from NWI to BHX as BEE037P and was put directly into the Flybe hangar for final preparations. It departed this morning at 07:00Z as BEE031P and arrived in ATH at 17:15L. Two more Dash-8 Q400s are scheduled to arrive in ATH on wetlease from Flybe, G-ECOF and G-FLBE (see post)
