In response to the high demand and in celebration of the fantastic livery design Aviationtag now proudly present what is already our third Aviationtag edition of a former Iberia aircraft: The Airbus A340-300 with the registration EC-GUP!
In May 1998, Airbus delivered the A340 with serial number 217 and test registration F-WWJG to the Spanish Oneworld member, which christened it “Agustina de Aragon”.
In 2016, Iberia parted ways with its long-time “workhorses” and decommissioned the Airbus A340-300 fleet. The last commercial passenger flight with an aircraft of this type was by the EC-GUP on 14 November 2016 as IB 6166 from Boston to Madrid, writing Spanish aviation history in the process.
The year after, the “Agustina de Aragon” was transferred to Castellon for further recycling. Aviationtag have managed to salvage parts of the EC-GUP and upcycle them into a limited-edition Aviationtag.
