The Boeing 737-300 with Manufacturer Serial Number (MSN) 23525 launched its career in October 1986 with Lufthansa, Germany’s largest airline. The aircraft took to the skies for 11 years christened “Siegen” and sporting registration D-ABXD. Between December 1997 and October 1998, Saudi Arabian Airlines and British Airways used the passenger aircraft. After these brief guest stints, Lufthansa reintroduced the Boeing 737 into its fleet in November 1989, returning it to its original registration D-ABXD.
In 2004, the low-cost carrier Jet2 took ownership of the aircraft and renamed it Jet2Faro. With its new registration G-CELH, it flew daily to European destinations. On 29 September 2018, however, the G-CELH was retired once and for all and had been waiting at Lasham Airport since 22 October 2018 to start its new life as an Aviationtag.
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!
Material: mainly metal
