After fifteen years of service with Air Contractors, the last DHL A300‐B4 flight operated from Basel to Leipzig on Friday 28th June. EI-‐SAF entered service with Eastern Airlines in 1982 and has been in service with Air Contractors and DHL since 2001. In total Air Contractors operated a fleet of sixteen different A300‐B4s. This flight also marked the end of an era of jet aircraft operated with Flight Engineers.
Air Contractors continues to operate the successor to the B4, the A300-600 for DHL in Hong Kong.
