TUI Bids Farewell to the Boeing 767, Marking the End of an Era

TUI Airways, the United Kingdom’s largest holiday charter airline, has bid farewell to its fleet of Boeing 767 aircraft, marking the end of an era for the aviation industry. The last TUI 767, registration G-OBYF, departed Manchester Airport on October 31, 2023, bound for storage in the United States.

The Boeing 767, a wide-body twinjet aircraft, first entered service with TUI in 1985 and has played a pivotal role in the airline’s growth and success. The aircraft’s versatility, range, and passenger capacity made it an ideal choice for long-haul charter flights, transporting millions of holidaymakers to destinations worldwide.

“The Boeing 767 has been a stalwart of our fleet for nearly four decades,” acknowledged a TUI spokesperson. “It has served us faithfully, carrying millions of passengers to their dream destinations and providing them with comfortable and reliable travel experiences.”

TUI’s decision to retire the Boeing 767 is part of its ongoing fleet modernization strategy, which aims to enhance operational efficiency and environmental sustainability. The airline is replacing its older 767s with newer, more fuel-efficient Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

“While we are sad to see the 767 go, we are excited to continue modernizing our fleet and introduce the latest fuel-efficient aircraft,” stated the TUI spokesperson. “This will enable us to reduce our environmental impact and provide our customers with an even better travel experience.”

The retirement of the Boeing 767 marks the end of an era for TUI Airways and the aviation industry. However, the legacy of this iconic aircraft will live on in the memories of millions of passengers who enjoyed its comfortable and reliable service.
