After the first TAP Airbus A330 edition with its fantastic colours quickly sold out, we are following up right away with the equally colourful CS-TOI series!
The plane sporting serial number MSN195 is the second prototype of the A330-200 model, making it a very special aircraft! It initially flew for Airbus for one and a half years and then changed hands to Austrian Airlines in May 1999, before ending up with TAP Air Portugal, which it took to the skies for as “Damião de Góis” as of July 2007.
In 2019, the Airbus A330 was finally retired and then recycled in the Netherlands in 2020. We have been able to upcycle both logos and the internet address on the plane into our latest Aviationtag edition!
If you’ve always itched to own a piece of an A330 prototype, now is your chance!
Note: Every tag is unique. Depending on the plane, tags may vary in terms of haptics, material thickness and colour. Small blemishes bear witness to the plane’s long history and are an authentic reminder of its glory days over the clouds. Small scratches, flaky paint and imperfections are totally normal and give our Aviationtags their unique charm – the charm of a vintage product crafted from upcycled materials. These quirks are not the result of the production process, they simply reflect the state of the aircraft material we use when it was extracted. The original aircraft paint of this edition is rather sensitive, so please take good care of your tag!
