Thanks to the VS Source

Virgin Atlantic A350-1000 G-VDOT Operates Seoul Incheon Cargo Sector.
Feb 12, 2021
Virgin Atlantic A350-1000 G-VDOT operated a London Heathrow – Seoul Incheon cargo sector late tonight as VS672. This was the first Virgin Atlantic A350-1000 at Seoul.

GVDOT is currently flying what appears to be ICN into Xiamen. Off for some maintenance, although that seems early for an aircraft only delivered a few months ago, although noting it’s the original Airbus frames so is much older!

Also I’ve noticed although VS Source hasn’t picked it up that VS602 JNB-LHR has stopped off twice this week in Saurimo in Angola or appears to,
some kind of FR24 error or another port opened up for VS Cargo?

I don’t think she’s going to XMN for maintenance, I think it’s more likely cargo ops.

9H-PPE (Ex G-VWEB) which is now operating for Maleth-aero has flown XMN-BOH today on a cargo sector, so I’m guessing that DOT is involved in a similar operation.

G-VDOT has now departed XMN. Not sure where she's currently heading but it could possibly be back to ICN.

G-VTEA is currently on route from LHR>ICN as well as the VS672.

These are new cargo routes for VS. All flights for these routes are A35Ks and the A333s are taking over some A35K flights (currently LHR-LOS flights) to allow these to happen.

Interesting that VS seem to have re-introduced their VS238 service to HKG, though I’m guessing it’s cargo only?

Not seem that flight number for sometime now!

G-VOWS is currently op’ing that flight this evening.
