Air New Zealand is planning to retire their Boeing 767 fleet on 31 March 2017, with NZ108 from Sydney to Auckland as their last scheduled 767 flight (NOTE: Subject to change).

The airline introduced the Boeing 767-200ER into service in September 1985, and their first 767 service to Perth was on 28 March 1986 by ZK-NBA. The 767-200ER fleet was retired in March 2005, with ZK-NBA being the last aircraft retired.

The 767-300ER was introduced in April 1991, with the first Perth visit on 28 October 1994 by ZK-NCH. The fleet was later modified with winglets to improve fuel efficiency.

The Boeing 767-300ER was replaced by Air New Zealand’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on services between Perth and Auckland from 12 September 2014, but 767s were still used on the seasonal Perth – Christchurch services.

Four Boeing 767-300ER remain in service at the time of writing, ZK-NCG, ZK-NCI, ZK-NCJ, and ZK-NCL.

These good Old boeings starts to retire now time for a new era of aircrafts

I want to go on a 767 but family probably won’t let me

Time for it to go, done a good run but it’s time for the final touchdown, newer aircraft, newer technology, better fuel efficiency

This is sad, I love Air New Zealand. And their liveries look great on all there aircraft - escpecially the 787 and 767.
