The Airbus A319-100 sporting the registration OK-MEL and Manufacturer Serial Number MSN 3094 was delivered in April 2007 to the Czech flag carrier Czech Airlines – member of the SkyTeam Airline Alliance – where it was christened Vysocina.
In 2015, the plane took to the skies over India and Southeast Asia for three months for the Indian low-cost carrier SpiceJet before returning to Czech Airlines on 22 September 2015. Four years later, Lufthansa leased our OK-MEL, using the Airbus for just shy of four months.
In total, the Airbus A319-100 flew for almost 14 years, twelve of them for Czech Airlines alone, which unfortunately was forced to file for bankruptcy in February 2021. In March 2020, the plane was removed from service, waiting until December at Cotswold Airport to be recycled.
We are proud to now be adding another European flag carrier to our fleet, Czech Airlines!

Airbus A319: The Airbus A319 is the second jet – chronologically speaking – in the well-known A320 family. Official work on the aircraft commenced on June 10, 1993 and its maiden flight soon followed on August 25, 1995 from Hamburg – Finkenwerder. With its fuselage length of almost 34 m, the A319 is about 3.8 m shorter than the basic A320 model, but still offers top of the range passenger comfort. With its flexible and generous seat width and extra-wide aisle, it sets new standards for passenger cabin flexibility in this segment.
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.
We strongly suggest to use the Aviationtag protection cover.
