Air Canada to Accelerate Retirement of 79 Aircraft

Air Canada to Accelerate Retirement of 79 Aircraft

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian flag carrier, Air Canada, has reported a loss of $1.05 billion. As a result, the airline will be speeding up the retirement of 79 planes, with some retired with immediate effect. 

 

The aircraft being retired consists of three aircraft types, the 767, A319, and E190. This means that Air Canada Rouge will see 47 of its 66 aircraft exit the airline's fleet, and the subsidiary will only operate A320s and A321s. In the airline's fleet (including the subsidiaries), there were 30 767-300ERs, 38 A319s, and 14 E190s. Out of all of these aircraft, all of them will be retired, except for the Air Canada Jetz A319s, which will probably stay within the airline. After the retirement, the airline now has 70% of its pre-COVID-19 fleet.

After they recover, what will be replacing these retired aircraft? Since they still have 41 A220s and 26 737 MAX 8s on order, they could possibly be replacements for those aircraft, possibly replacing the E190s and the A319s. 

 

Now I want to hear your opinions. Is Air Canada making a wise move by speeding their retirement? What will be replacing their 767-300ERs? Leave your thoughts down below.
