Donghai Airlines' B-224A

Donghai Airlines is taking delivery of their first 737-8, B-224A (c/n 61291, l/n 8225), this afternoon, and is their first delivery since 2019. Donghai has also changed the livery on the 737-8s to feature billboard titles in Chinese, replacing the two-tone blue wave stripes. This 737-8 is making its delivery flight from BFI to SZX, via JRF and GUM, as EPA166, and will overnight at JRF.

Donghai Airlines had seven new-build 737-8s in storage during the grounding and pandemic. Last year, they sold three 737-8s to GOL Airlines, and two to Akasa Air.
