Hello,
ABD Air Belgium flew to Tarbes this morning, is it for long-term storage or for returning the plane to Airbus?

My understanding is that the plane belongs to Airbus, AFS, Airbus Financial Services, no?

Tarbes airport is also one of the locations of TARMAC , Tarbes Advanced Recycling & Maintenance Aircraft Company (also present at Teruel).

TARMAC is specialized in (long term) storage, maintenance and .... "recycling" of aircraft.

This is Air Belgium’s response to aviation24’s question: “given the reduced demand and current operational restrictions du to COVID-19, we have logically decided to differ maintenance and checks and temporarily park and store 2 aircraft for the winter.”
