VH-ZPE is the fourth of five Virgin Australia E-190s that will be withdrawn from the fleet and transferred to operate for Aero Mexico. VH-ZPD, VH-ZPG and VH-ZPF have already left Australia - see referring Blog post HERE.
VH-ZPE was originally delivered to Virgin Blue at the start of July 2008 and took up the name 'Bluephoria'. After re-painting into the new Virgin Australia livery, it then wore the name ‘Coogee Beach’.
