Did Austrian Airlines Ever Fly Regional Jets?

Wed Sep 06, 2006 9:32 am

Hi guys.

My question is .......

Did Austrian Airlines ever fly Regional Jets such as the Canadair CL-600-2B19 Regional Jet?

The reason I'm asking is because I took photos a few weeks ago of a CRJ that was stripped inside & out of parts (major parts too like control surfaces) and resting on concrete blocks without landing gear beside the Bombardier Aerospace hangar at the Jack Garland Airport in North Bay, Ontario (YYB / CYYB), and this RJ had an Austrian Airlines paint job.

But, I can't find any shots of an Austrian Airlines CRJ in A.net's database. So I'm just wondering what Austrian Airlines did with this jet?

Here's 2 photos, but unfortunately it didn't have a registration on it.

I'm a little shocked that they have started to scrap CRJ's. They're not that old.....

Hello UnitedTristar & Cadet57.

Thanks for your explanations. OK, now I know why I couldn't find any photos ... I wasn't searching for the right carrier.  silly

"TECHNICALLY" you werent, They are part of Austrian, I beleive that it is Tyrolean that operates the flights.

Well, here's a shot of her during better times (less than a year ago), and it was flying for Tyrolean Airways with the reg OE-LRG.

She was flying one day, then scraped the next! Wow!

It is a very old CRJ, one of the first ones built, so due to heavy use in recent years, it is more economical to part it out and sell its parts for spares than to keep it flying after extensive overhaul - especially now, since the exploding fuel prices have somewhat stopped the growth of the 50-seat RJ market.

This CRJ-100LR was delivered to Lauda Air on 24 March 1995 which makes it the 22th CRJ-100LR. The first ever build was delivered in 1992.
OE-LRG was retired in March 2006. Austrian Arrows now operates only one CRJ-100LR, OE-LRH/7125. sister ship OE-LRE was very recently retired

OE-LRF/7061 has also been scrapped.
Only 11 years old and scrapped already, a sad end.

Basically CRJs were operated by both Lauda Air and Tyrolean Airways but as both airlines became part of the Austrian Airlines group a few years ago some of the CRJs started to appear in Austrian Arrows colours (Austrian Arrows now being the operating brand of Tyrolean Airways).

I believe Lauda had 5 of the first 35 CRJs ever built and as we are now way over 800 airframes I would say that the old dears are getting on a bit! A sad day for me that they have started to be scrapped as I have flown on OE-LRA,B,C,D and E (all Lauda Air).

Thanks for your replies guys. That info is appreciated AMSSFO. I'm sure this aircraft has been scraped for economical reasons as TriStar500 mentioned, but I'm also surprised that this has occurred after only 11+ years. I understand your sad feelings Spottingpete93. What a drag!

There were actually 2 CRJs up on blocks beside the Bombardier hangar.
I guess it's safe to say the final fate of the second one was based on financial reasons too.

So here you also have the end of the line for Air Littoral's CRJ with reg .. F-GNMN.

Do you guys think I should submit this one to a.net as a tailshot?

Now she's hanging out beside ex Tyrolean OE-LRG. It's a shame, but I guess it's all about money & safety.

There is no such thing.
This aircraft is very old (and still doing fine)
