Flypop, a new low-cost long-haul airline based in the United Kingdom, has added a second Airbus A330 aircraft to its roster.
On January 15, 2022, flypop’s new Airbus A330, registered as 9H-PTP, landed for the maiden time at London Stansted Airport (STN), the carrier’s home base. Until the airline begins passenger service, the new aircraft will be used for scheduled cargo operations.
