Pionair Australia Embraer E190-E2 (ERJ-190-300 STD) VH-IKJ Pops into Rockhampton Airport in a Revised Livery

Also on Thursday 27 October, Pionair Australia Embraer E190-E2 (ERJ-190-300 STD) VH-IKJ was spotted passing through Rockhampton Airport while flying down from Townsville to Brisbane.

The Embraer has been in Townsville since the start of the month and had a re-paint at the Flying Colours Paint Shop at Townsville Airport.  Sadly, the attractive Air Kiribati livery that VH-IKJ was delivered in and flew around in since February 2020 was removed given the South-Pacific Airline's decision to not pursue jet transport operations.

It is assumed that VH-IKJ will join Pionair Australia's general passenger charter flight services, alongside their British Aerodrome BAe 146-200 quad-jets.

As mentioned below, Pionair Australia's second Embraer E-190 (ERJ-190-100 LR) VH-SEF, has now been acquired by Alliance Airlines and was ferried to Townsville for re-painting at the local Flying Colours paint-shop.  VH-SEF looked to recently return to Brisbane from Townsville on Wednesday 12 October.

Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Scott H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
