The Airbus A319 operated by Chair Airlines with the registration HB-JOH was so badly damaged in the course of maintenance that the machine was classified as an economic total loss. According to company boss Shpend Ibrahimi, the medium-haul jet is said to have been damaged through the gate of a hangar.

The Chair Airlines fleet last consisted of three A319s. According to Travel Inside, the unfortunate copy will not be repaired, but will act as a spare parts donor. Ibrahimi confirmed to the medium that there was an economic total loss. This means that the repair would be too expensive.

Since flight operations have already been reduced due to the pandemic, the total loss has no impact on flight operations. Chair is now looking for a suitable replacement, which should be put into service before summer 2021. The HB-JOH was originally delivered to Hamburg International in 2008.
