UK aviation this week ended passenger operations with one of Boeing’s most popular aircraft, the 767, ending a chapter that dates back nearly 40 years.
Reported by Simple flyingTUI Airways has retired its last Boeing 767-300ER, the last British airline to offer this model on passenger flights.
The Boeing 767 began operating in the United Kingdom nearly 40 years ago, when Britannia Airways began operating the 767-200 in February 1984.
Retiring the 767 from passenger service has become more common in recent years, mainly due to the arrival of newer, more efficient twin-engine aircraft with lower operating costs. On the other hand, the 767-300 has a long lifespan, making it one of the most modified models for freighter operations, meaning the 767 could be seen in the skies for a while longer.
With the withdrawal of the 767, TUI Airways will operate its long-haul operations exclusively on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
