Greenjet to take delivery of their first A321s registered SX-GRN and SX-GRO

Greenjet is to take delivery of their first A321s registered SX-GRO (msn 557, ex B-MAB) and SX-GRN (msn 597, ex B-MAR). Both are Airbus A321-131s and are currently in Hungary. SX-GRN was initially to be taken up by a first A320 (msn 407, ex N407BV) that the company had brought to Athens, but that plane never got the registration and eventually ended to Aviatrans as UR-CKR.

Edited 20/6/2013 16:55Z: SX-GRN was initially to be taken up by their first A320, not SX-GRO as it was written. Sorry for the typo.
