Air Canada’s A340 fleet still active aircraft.

I recently came across an article at SimpleFlying.com entitled ‘What happened to Air Canada’s Airbus A340 Fleet?’ which led me back to one of my own NetLetter articles.

In NL #1346, from July 2016, I wrote about how the A340’s had become a ‘forgotten fleet’ after their much-heralded arrival back in 1995.

Surprisingly, three of these aircraft are still in service today and have had very interesting life cycles.

Registration C-FYLD (Fin #904) was acquired by Aerolineas Argentinas December 2013 and is now flying under registration LV-FPU. View at FlightRadar24.com.

Registration C-GDVV (Fin #908) was acquired by the Iranian government in September 2015 and is now flying under registration EP-AJA. View at FlightRadar24.com.

Registration C-GDVZ (Fin #910) was stored in August 2015 and later acquired by Kam Air of Afganistan on a lease from Orix Aviation, February 3, 2017. Now registered as YA-KMT. View at FlightRadar24.com.
