BA To End Boeing 767 Operations This Year

British Airways will retire its 767s 28 years after receiving its first.

LONDON—British Airways (BA) will end operations with the Boeing 767 in the 2018 fourth quarter, some 28 years after it received the first examples of the U.S.-built twin aisle.

BA has seven remaining 767-300ERs in its fleet. They are used on a small number of short-haul routes to European destinations, such as Amsterdam, Athens, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Rome and Stockholm, typically in two-class, 244-seat configuration. They are also occasionally used on domestic UK services.

The fate of the seven aircraft, which are all owned by the airline, is not yet known, a BA spokesperson said.
