Air Moldova receives second A319

Air Moldova now has two of the type The aircraft was previously operated by Frontier Airlines and China Eastern Airlines (Air Moldova)

Air Moldova has added an Airbus A319 narrowbody to its fleet. The 150-seat airliner, with registration code ER-AXM, was delivered to the Moldovan flagship carrier’s base at Chisinau airport last week.

According to open source information, the aircraft was put into operation in 2002. It was originally operated by US carrier Frontier Airlines, and later by China Eastern Airlines. It is the second of the type in Air Moldova’s fleet, the first having been delivered in June 2015.

Air Moldova also operates one A321 and two A320s, as well as several Embraer E190s, which the carrier uses quite intensively.

The airline first carried over one million passengers within a year in 2015, largely thanks to the cessation of direct air travel between Russia and Ukraine. No passenger traffic data for 2016 is available.
