Recently Returned (ex-New Zealand) Virgin Australia B737-800s Continue to Call into CQ Airports

Over the last week or so, we've continued to note the recently returned Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 aircraft calling into Central Queensland Airports.

On Tuesday 14 April, VH-VUQ (ex ZK-PBL) called into both Mackay and Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airports.  It was captured at a dark and gloomy Mackay as it arrived from Brisbane as VOZ605.

On Thursday 16 April, I spotted VH-VOO (ex ZK-PBA) at Hamilton Island Airport operating VOZ1281/1282 from and back to Sydney.

Meanwhile, also at Hamo, on Sunday 19 April, VH-VUD (ex ZK-PBG) made what I believe to be its first visit in CQ since it re-entered service in Australia in early March when it operated the VOZ1497/1496 service from and back to Brisbane.

And also on Sunday 19 April, a pair of ex-New Zealand B737-800s called into Mackay Airport with VH-VUH (ex ZK-PBI) visiting from and back to Brisbane as VOZ607/610, while VH-VUO (ex ZK-PBM) called in later also from and back to Brisbane as VOZ613/614. 

At Rockhampton Airport VH-VOP (ex ZK-PBB) and VH-VUP (ex ZK-PBK) called in operating the morning VOZ1235/1238 service from and back to Brisbane on Friday 17 April and Saturday 18 April respectively.

Finally, VH-VOR (ex ZK-PBF) which continued to wear the titles of Virgin Samoa following its re-entry into Australian service (as shown above), had these titles removed and replaced with Virgin Australia titles at Townsville at the start of this month re-entering service with Virgin Australia on Saturday 4 April.
