As the world began tightening its borders in March 2020, C-GSAT, an Airbus A310, simultaneously performed Air Transat’s last A310-300 revenue flight and repatriated Canadian citizens stranded in Portugal due to flight restrictions. MotoArt welcomes C-GSAT to the PlaneTags fleet. Read more about the plane's history on our blog.
The twin-engine, twin-aisle widebody Airbus A310 was the most profitable jetliner of its class, offering lower operating costs and maximum flexibility in seating arrangements for operators, and a roomy, comfortable flight for passengers. The A310 led the way in commercial jetliners use of composites, using carbon-fiber materials in its vertical stabilizer, as well as composite spoilers, landing gear doors, and floor struts. The 14 A310-300s used by Air Transat seated 250 passengers in a two-class configuration and were used for long haul passenger flights from Canada to Mexico, the Caribbean, and Europe. They were already slated to retire but unprecedented schedule changes due to COVID flight restrictions brought about an even earlier retirement for the A310 fleet.
*Important Notice – Please Read Carefully
PlaneTags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because PlaneTags are made from real fuselage, each PlaneTag bears the colour, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. As a result, you will not have an option to select the colour of your PlaneTag. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag.
Caution: Not recommended for children under 8 years of age. This product contains chemical-based paint which may cause respiratory irritation if ingested or inhaled in large quantities. Keep out of mouth.
