✖️ Airbus A319 (average age ~ 23 years) – 15 aircraft;

✖️ Boeing 767 (average age 30+ years) – 5 aircraft.

Boeing has begun accumulating waivers from the Boeing 737 MAX, which has been banned for more than a year. And it seems that this is only the beginning, but let’s take it in order.

As a result, the total number of aircraft ordered by the Canadian carrier was 50. Air Canada has already received 24 737 MAX aircraft.
