Who Or What Is Y0?

Wed Mar 23, 2005 6:07 am

On boeing aircraft, the first three numbers designate the model, i.e. 737, 767 etc. The next one after the - is the sub-model i.e.e 737-500 or 737-400. The next two show which airline the aircraft was originally made for. I'm not sure if this has a proper name or not. For example, Korean air is B5, BA is 36, Continental is 24.

What I would like to know (if anyone can tell me) is who (if anyone) originally used Y0? Many airlines operate a 7*7-*Y0 for example, 767-3Y0/ER (see pictures below). I'm guessing if there was an airline with this tag, it's an airline that has been dead for a few years now.

Thanks

The Y0 customer code was for the GPA Group, which were a huge Irish leasing company that went bankrupt in the 1990s. Most of their aircraft were taken over by GECAS. There are many, many aircraft carrying the GPA customer code, mainly B737s.

For a very good list of Boeing Customer Codes, visit the Airlinecodes website.

Y0 is the code for G.P.A. Group, which I believe is a leasing company

Quoting Jsqvl1 (Reply 4):
Most of Avianca's 757 are Y0

And most are registered in Ireland (EI-CEY, EI-CEZ)
