Air Canada has retired all its Boeing 767s

On the 2nd of June, Air Canada flew its final Boeing 767, a -300ER, from Monreal-Trudeau Airport to Toronto-Pearson International Airport. This marks the end of a 37-year journey between the airline and the plane model. The Boeing 767-300ER (as well as the -200ER) was brought in in the 80s and 90s to replace Air Canada’s Lockheed L-1011 Tristars. Before flying on long-haul international routes, they were used on trans-continental flights. Now, they have been replaced by 29 flashing new 787-9s, that are more fuel-efficient. Air Canada has operated a total of 67 Boeing 767s in its history, of which 23 were -200ERs (this model was retired in 2008 after 25 years of service) and 44 -300ERs. Freight versions of the 767 are still being produced, and there over 700 still inservice, but mainly with cargo airlines. 4th of June 2020.
