V Air's N805AV

Avianca [AV/AVA] (Colombia) is taking delivery of N805AV (msn 6009), leased from Wells Fargo Bank Northwest. This A321-231SL, still in the V Air livery, is making its delivery flight from TPE [Taipei, Taiwan] to TUS [Tucson, AZ], with stops at GUM, HNL, where it will get the Avianca livery and interior configuration.

6009 was originally delivered to TransAsia Airways [GE/TNA] (Taiwan) in March 2014 as B-22608. It was leased to V Air [ZV/VAX] (Taiwan), TransAsia's low-cost subsidiary from October 2014 to October 2016 as B-22610. This A321 remained in the above V Air livery after the airline shutdown. However, TransAsia also shutdown in November 2016. The airframe was acquired by WFBN, and stored at TPE.
