Farewell to some Virgin Australia B738s.

Updated: Nov 21, 2020

In its transition to new ownership by Bain Capital, Virgin Australia decided to decrease its fleet size by selling some B738s. Prior to the pandemic, Virgin Australia had 85 B737s, including two B737-700s. Virgin Australia Chief Operations Officer, Stuart Aggs, advised recently that "the airline has been successful in renegotiating the terms on 54 737-800 and two 737-700 aircraft, taking our total fleet size to 56 when we exit administration", and therefore retiring 29 Boeing 737s amidst its restructure. Below is a list of aircraft which are known to date (16/11/20) that have been either sold, ferried out, or have been deregistered.
