The passenger Airbus A330 fleet of Avianca has been retired.

Following over 15 years of service, Avianca has retired its final Airbus A330 from its fleet.

The final two A330s, frames N974AV and N279AV, flew from Cali Alfonso Bonilla Aragon International Airport (CLO) to Bogota El Dorado International Airport (BOG) on February 21 and February 15, 2023, respectively.

These two A330s were the final two still in service with the Colombian airline. Two more, designated as N342AV and N968AV respectively, were placed in CLO storage in August 2022 and May 2020.

“It was almost 15 years of carrying passengers, you were so reliable that you did not even stop in pandemic and connected Bogotá 🇨🇴 with great destinations: Miami 🇺🇸, Mexico 🇲🇽, Buenos Aires 🇦🇷, Sao Paulo 🇧🇷, Madrid 🇪🇸, Barcelona 🇪🇸, Los Angeles 🇺🇸, and New York 🇺🇸,” read Avianca’s post on LinkedIn.

Six Airbus A330F freighters are now in operation by Avianca Cargo, a cargo division of the airline.

On September 30, 2008, it received delivery of its first Airbus A330, with the registration N948AC. The remaining passenger models, including the A330-200 and A330-300, were delivered throughout the course of the following ten years.

The Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, of which there are presently 13 in service, is the other long-distance aircraft it utilizes. Without accounting for lessor-related orders, Avianca’s order book now only has 88 Airbus A320neo aircraft.
