Oldest Airliner in Commercial Service

Recommended Posts

Hello all

 

I have a brain teaser I was hoping someone might have the answer to. Does anybody know at present which aircraft is the oldest currently flying in commercial service for normal scheduled/charter use. This doesn't include aircraft which are flown because the aircraft is old, for example some preserved aircraft which fly experience flights.

 

How about the same question but in Europe alone?

 

I am imagining that it's probably a 737-300 - in fact it was looking at Jet2.com's fleet that made me think of the question.

If you would like to go to Iran you could be on a scheduled passenger 727.  Iran Aseman Airlines. But.... It's Iran haha

 

Or perhaps you'd like to go to North Korea.  Air Koryo still operates the Ilyushin IL-62 and Tupolev TU-154.

I think Buffalo Airways still has the DC-3 on regular service flights between Yellowknife and Hay River.
