Hey Westjet 8,

According to Bill Harms website, the Canadian Armed Forces has five former Wardair A310's, Royal Aviation has one, and Aeroflot has two (leased through Polar).
Hope this helps.

Westjet 8,

I found some more.
The French Airforce also has one, and Air India has two.
I did'nt know that Wardair flew 11 A310's.

They spent less than a year at Canadian Airlines before being eliminated from the fleet.

C-GRYA is the Royal/C3000 A310 previously with Wardair. It's the nicest A310 they have too.

Can't believe no one mentioned C-FGWD, which later went to Thai Airways and crashed as HS-TID.
