Caribbean flair at Aviationtag!
As the cold, dreary weather typical of this time of year in Europe sets in let us whisk you away to the Caribbean with today’s newcomer: The Boeing 737-800 from Caribbean Airlines sporting registration 9Y-KIN is now part of the Aviationtag fleet.
In November 2000, the 737 sporting Manufacturer Serial Number (MSN) 28234 was transferred to BWIA West Indies Airways, flying for the Trinidad and Tobago carrier until 2006. In 2006, BWIA ceased operations, with Trinidad & Tobago-based Caribbean Airlines taking over all flights to Caribbean and international destinations – and the 9Y-KIN too – in January 2007.
Back to our MSN 28234: Up until January 2022, the Boeing 737 still flew for Caribbean Airlines in a two-class configuration before being retired and then scrapped in the summer. The flight to England for scrapping was probably the first and last to Europe for the 9Y-KIN.
