MIAMI – Following in the step of its fellow sister OE-LAT, which left Austrian Airlines’ (OS) fleet on March 3, another Boeing 767-300 is leaving today with destination Oscoda-Wurtsmith (OSC) in Michigan.
The aircraft, registered as OE-LAX departed Vienna-Schwechat Airport (VIE) as flight OS1411 and will make a stop in Bangor (BGR) to go thru customs clearance and then continue as OS1413n to its final destination in OSC.
OE-LAX was delivered by Boeing in 1992 and started its flight life with Lauda Air (NG) and was integrated into the OS fleet when the airline took over NG in July 2012. For history sake, OE-LAX life is comprised of 19600 landings and 133600 hours in flight which account for 15 years spent in airspace.
This is the second Boeing 767-300 OS aircraft retirement in 2021 and will be followed by a third one, concerning registration OE-LAW, to take place in the course of the year. The fleet reduction and restructuring is part of the efforts made by OS to regain financial stability as it awaits better flying days.
