PS retiring 767s what replacement?

Thu Feb 15, 2018 12:28 am

Ukraine Airlines is retiring all (4) of their 767s with only one new (to them) 777 coming online. The 76s are the entire long haul fleet. Anyone have any info about replacing them or future plans?

Surely they won’t retire them until all 777s are ready to take their place? Otherwise, if there’s a gap, will there be some temporary lease-ins

Based on the info I can find they have one 777 joining the fleet and (4) 767 leaving the fleet. Their schedule relies heavily on their 767 fleet—they work them hard. One doesn’t equal four. No other planes in their fleet can complete the missions the 767s do.

And now I can answer my own question. They are purchasing one 777 and leasing three additional 777s.

I thought that was confirmed late last year and there is a thread on these forums that discussed the KIEV to JFK route and the four PS B777's that PS were acquiring with a photo of the first one in full Ukraine colours.
