All British Airways 747’s would now be heading for scrapyards at St Athan, Kemble (Cotswold Airport) and Castellon for parting out.
But Rossiya has now apparently stepped in and offered a new life to some of the airlines youngest jumbos, namely G-BYGA, B, C, D, E, F G.
Rossiya already operates nine Boeing 747-400 aircraft mostly leased from VTB and Sberbank carrying Irish registrations.
It is unclear whether Rossiya is purchasing the aircraft outright of via a lease supplier.
The aircraft are expected to be delivered to the St. Petersburg Pulkovo based airline in October and November when Rossiya will become the largest operator of the type.
