Corsair International has retired its Boeing 747-400 fleet.
Corsair, a leisure airline based in Paris-Orly airport, will retire its remaining three Boeing 747-400s.
These three 747s have been grounded for weeks as the airline has essentially suspended all flights.
Corsair’s three 747s were supposed to be retired between December 2020 and May 2021 as they plan to replace them with upcoming Airbus A330-900neos.
Unfortunately, this is no longer the case as Corsair’s 747s will not return to service. Corsair is the final French airline to operate the 747 following Air France’s retirement of the aircraft in 2016.
Corsair’s long-haul fleet throughout the past 30 years has consisted of the iconic Boeing 747. The airline has operated the -100, -200, -300, -400, and SP variants of the 747.
Once again, sad to see these go as the number of passenger 747s continues to decrease every day.
