There are only a few airlines left to use the Boeing 747 for scheduled passenger transportation, but there are still opportunities even within Europe to test the iconic type on this summer’s schedule.

The older version of the Boeing 747-400 is now operated only by Lufthansa, Air China, and South Korean Asiana Airlines, and the newer version, the 747-8 Intercontinental, is only flown in the fleets of Lufthansa, Air China, and Korean Air.

The German airline operates scheduled flights from Frankfurt to Bengaluru, Delhi, Seoul, Shanghai, Toronto and Vancouver with 747-400s.

In fact, as we wrote before, between April 2 and 23 Lufthansa also flies to Mallorca with this type once a week.

Asiana Airlines still uses the type between Seoul, Ho Chi Minh City, Shanghai, and Tokyo-Narita, and Air China between Beijing and Shenzhen.

In addition, Saudi Arabia operates another chartered version for Hajj flights in Mecca this year, and Iran’s Mahan Air also uses its current aircraft from time to time.

The larger Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental, equipped with engines of the new generation, can be found on slightly more routes.

Lufthansa flies between Frankfurt, Bengaluru, Buenos Aires, Chicago, Houston, Johannesburg, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Miami, New York, Newark, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Tokyo Haneda and Washington in a more modern version, in the summer schedule mainly every day of the week.

Air China will fly between Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai (Hongqiao), and Korean Air will fly between Seoul, Atlanta, Honolulu, Los Angeles, New York and Paris with its 747-8 aircraft in the summer 2023 season.

As we wrote earlier, on January 31, 2023, the American manufacturer delivered its last Boeing 747, No. 1574, which was a cargo version. With this, the iconic genre program came to an end after 55 years.

Boeing decided in 2020 to halt sales, later production, and the entire program as a result of lower demand due to the rise of the twin-engine high-capacity, long-range models. But even earlier, in 2016, it began to reduce the compilation rate, switching to 1 machine per month, which was then reduced to 1 copy every two months. The production of the passenger version was actually completed in 2017, and since then only the cargo version -8F has been produced.
