I read in Justplanes news that Air NZ will sell or has sold its remaining 3 B767-200's to GECAS and will lease them back after 7 years. The aircraft are ZK-NBA, NBB and NBC.
It does not say when the aircraft will leave the fleet though.
Its sad to see these aircraft go but they are the oldest aircraft in the fleet and are used on flights to Australia only. I wonder what they will be replaced with more 763's? A new leased 763 is due this year sometime.

Yeah sorry guys I misread but I don't think Air NZ will operate them until 2008. I agree with Kiwi dave that they should be gone by the end of 2003. Considering ZK-NBJ just has just been sold I guess maybe other carriers may lease the other 3 off GECAS, but then the article didn't state that. We will just have to wait and see I guess.
