Nigeria

In 1980 a project was under way where Transair was to rent and crew one or possibly two B 727 to the domestic company Central Airlines. One class of cabin crew even completed training at the Transair facilities in Malmö and at the same time one aircraft (SE-DDB) was painted in Central Airlines colors, titles and all. This aircraft continued to serve for Transair in their regular charter operations.

Boeing 727 SE-DDB målades om i en ny livery inför uthyrningen till Central Airlines i Nigeria. Här står flygplanet parkerat utanför Transairs hangar på Sturup.

Staff from Malmö travelled to Nigeria prior to the planned start of the rent and pictures from that event can be viewed here below.
