After 28 years of service with the British flag carrier, the last Boeing 767 has operated its last flight. The final passenger flight was from Larnaca in Cyprus to London Heathrow on the 25th November.
BA took delivery of the first of its 28 B767s in 1990. The Boeing model was selected over its rival Airbus. The 767 was Boeing’s first twin engine wide body aircraft and BA used them on routes to Europe, the Middle East, Africa and North America. BA announced that the 767 fleet completed over 425,000 commercial flights during its service with the airline.
“The 767 has been a brilliant part of our fleet, flying some of our most popular routes and giving customers what was an industry-leading service in its time,” said British Airways director of flight operations, Capt Al Bridger. “It’s fitting that as the final 767 leaves the fleet; we take our 30th delivery of another industry-leading aircraft, the 787.”
The last 767 aircraft will be flown to St. Athan in Wales to be scrapped.
