Yesterday, on the 30th of June 2017, the Avro RJ100 with the registration HB-IYU flew it’s last operation between Zurich and Lyon.
The aircraft will be flown over Rotterdam to Cranfield to be returned to the Lessor Falco on July 3th.
This leaves only one last Avro RJ100 (jockingly nicknamed “Jumbolino” in Switzerland) in the fleet of Swiss: The HB-IYZ (named “Hohe Winde”). On the 20th August there will be a small sightseeing flight over Switzerland bookable through BuchAirTours.
I really liked those little Avro RJ100s as they were a part of Swiss for as long as I can remember.
A moment of silence as this great chapter of Swiss aviation comes to an end.
