MONTREAL, CANADA - On June 2nd, 2020, Canada's flagship Air Canada carried out its last flight with a Boeing 767 aircraft after 38 years of active service.

During that time, the Boeing had been a workhorse for the Canadian carrier on medium and long haul routes. The longest route operated by the Air Canada Boeing 767 was the Toronto-Tokyo route, requiring 13 hours and 45 minutes of flight time with the aircraft.

The first Boeing 767, a -200ER variant, joined the fleet of Air Canada in 1982. This aircraft stayed in service with the airline until 2008. The company took delivery of the first -300ER variant in 1988 and the type remained in service since. Air Canada operated 23 Boeing 767-200ER and 40 Boeing 767-300ER in total.

Air Canada's initial plan was to retire its remaining 767s in 2019, the airline decided to extend the time frame due to Boeing 737 MAX grounding. A year later, the pandemic hit the world, plummeted the demand for air travel.

Air Canada transfers its 25 Boeing 767-300ER to its low-cost subsidiary Air Canada Rouge.

The final flight (AC439) was a short trip from Montreal to Toronto and was operated by the aircraft with registration C-FTCA, a 31-year-old Boeing 767-300ER, which made its commercial debut in April 1989.
