  • List of current and former 747 operators

    Wikipedia used to have a country wise operators list that they deleted, so bringing it here continent wise.

    If any operators or types operated by some are missing add them in a separate post mentioning country.

    Some airlines were temporary 747 operators while others operated some 747 versions temporarily, in both cases time frame was anywhere from a month to a couple of years.

                  Smile Air a startup in Ghana was to lease some 747-400s, one was painted in the airlines livery but carrier never became operational.

                  Libyan Airlines never got to operate its own brand new 747-200s, aircraft were built and painted but due to sanctions not delivered, only flew some on lease for a few months for Hajj.

                  Khalifa Airways of Algeria was to operate a 747-400 jointly with Air Algerie, both carriers titles and logos were applied to it but was never delivered.

                              Some airlines were temporary 747 operators while others operated some 747 versions temporarily, in both cases time frame was anywhere from a month to a couple of years.

                              Hm. And I thought that I should rather write short forum entries..

                              This seems to be a new list "against the 747". I know that LUNN hates the 747, and he's uttered that also years before January 2018. But every 1 or 2 years, I have to tell him the truth.

                              LUNN dreams of Air India without a Boeing 747 fleet. But he definitely does not mention the truth in his various lists! As I previously mentioned, on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, there might be exactly

                              who you should ask about the Boeing 747, that's Little Bob, or me. And I can show evidence, which comes from the European side of the Ocean:

                              Air India B744 on Heathrow, April 2018.

                              That's what airlines are good for, amongst others,
