I know SQ is up there. It usually has a very young fleet when compared to some other airlines. The stats is now like 11 years i THINK. Hopefully if the A380 isnt delayed then this number should drop down and as they are replacing their OLD b744 this number should decrease quite a bit very soon

CO advertises one of the youngest if not the youngest in the U.S. of the legacy carriers, but don't know of a link, sorry.

FL has often advertised stating that it has the youngest Boeing fleet; its oldest 717 dates back to 1999.

S5's fleet is actually younger than any of those posted here (1.9 years), though they don't do any flying for themselves.

Hi,

MEA and Dragonair both have pretty young fleets! I think, for a while, Dragonair had the youngest fleet in the world (but don't quote me on that!  Smile).

Cheers,

So, doesn't that put them wayyyyyyy ahead of SQ? Also, the likes of IT and Spicejet should be having much younger fleets.....

NZ has an average fleet age now that the Saab340s have gone of 4.9 years. With 8x 789 due first off the lot when Boeing makes them (to replace the aging 763ER), the likelyhood of the 733 fleet being replaced and 744 fleet being replaced, along with the possibility of the ATR72 being replaced by Q400NZ will likely maintain an average fleet age of 4 years or less for the next decade.

As FR replaces their older 738s with brand-new machines, no doubt that average will fall, albeit only marginally.

Does U2 replace its older 73Gs/319s? Or will it? Or...?

QR 4.7 years
UL 11 years plus
EK 5.6 years

The fleet ages for both FR & U2 have to be a great acheivement, taking into consideration that they both operate over 100 aircraft. A small airline can quickly acheive a low fleet age by buying or leasing a hanful of new plane, but to average 2.5 or 2.8 years over a 100 aircraft fleet is very different.

35 Dsa : U2 is slowly replacing it's 73Gs, no plans to replace the 319s AFAIK. 73Gs to be replaced around 2011 I think, nice to see that EZY has a newer fleet
36 SansVGs : Huh? Skybus will give back leased VA frames (to VA) at some point only to replace them with zero age planes--don't understand your logic.
