A/C HL8056 in Ryanair's Fleet !?

Post by Ryanairmadrid » 17 May 2016, 08:44

Looking at Ryanair's fleet I spotted out this odd aircraft operated by T'Way Air in South Corea.

It has the same Air operating code as FR, that might be why its located in Ryanair's aircraft list.

Here is the weblink: https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/hl8056

The aircraft was leased by SMCB, originally RBS, and passed on from Ryanair in Decembr. It was the old aircarft EI-DYJ.
It could be why, seems bizarre though that this long after the aircraft is still on the database.

So SMCB bought it to Ryanair in December?

I think it was always owned by a leaseholder RBS and then SMBC. I think when FR returned the aircraft to them. SMBC then leased it to T'way

It probably is that.
Ryanair leased it, gave it back, and it was then leased to T'Way.
They I still don't see why its in Ryanairs fleet?!
