KLM In Talks to Retire The A330 Early

KLM To Retire The A330 Early?


KLM, touch airlines and talks to possibly retire there Airbus 330 aircraft early. They were scheduled to retire 13 aircraft from the 330 fleet in 2025, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, talks have been rising to retire of them early. Another reason why they chose these aircraft specifically it’s not only because they have the oldest, but also because they want a fully Boeing long-haul sleep. As evidence to support this, they had it over all of their Airbus 350 orders to Air France last year, because they wanted the 777X.

Wow! Hopefully, the KLM A330 sticks around for as long as it can, however, it’s a pandemic and airlines must do what they need to stay operational.

Thank you to all the pilots, crew, ATC, dispatchers, mechanics, airport personnel, and more for working hard putting yourselves at risk and keeping the industry running!

@CaptainZac Great Topic!!! :)

Maybe the aircraft will join the A330 AA and Thomas Cooks graveyard lol
I mean, if airlines are retiring the 757/767 this isn’t that much of a shock to me.

In Infinite Flight he follows a scarce without a rework or addition of other variants such as A332 and new A330neo. I’m sad!
