The Boeing 747 will land for the last time on Sunday 25 October in the blue KLM colors at Schiphol Airport. A spokesperson for the company has announced this.
In March of this year, KLM announced that it would withdraw the four-engine aircraft from the fleet early. This had everything to do with the corona crisis, which caused the demand for air travel to collapse and the 747 is a relatively inefficient aircraft.
After the farewell at the end of March, KLM decided not long afterwards, in connection with the same corona crisis, to put three of the jumbo jets back into service for the transport of medical supplies. This was done in collaboration with Philips. Since mid-April, the aircraft flew again between Amsterdam and the Chinese cities of Beijing and Shanghai.
KLM had already planned to withdraw the older aircraft from the fleet, but this was initially planned for mid-2021. More airlines are saying goodbye to the ‘Queen of the Skies’, as the 747 is affectionately known, due to the corona crisis.
British Airways had the last two 747s departing from London Heathrow almost simultaneously last week. The spokesperson for KLM was not yet able to give details about the very last landing of the airline’s Boeing 747-400 at Schiphol.
