Written by Jan Kotek.
A Boeing 737 BBJ was seen at Dubrovnik Airport on Friday, August 7th. Although it has P4-LIG registration from Caribbean island Aruba, it belongs to a Russian company Orion-X (OIX). Apart from this aircraft, Orion-X has one smaller Embraer ERJ-135 Legacy 650 with P4-SMS registration in its fleet. This company operates private charter flights.
This aircraft was built in 2008 and from the begining it flies under the same registration. It changed three Russian owners until now, Orex Aviation (OXV), Petroff Air (PTF), and the current Orion-X. Operational base of this aircraft is at Vnukovo Airport in Moscow.
