The EI-LBT Story!

Slán abhaile, St Brendan! 

The story of the Boeing 757-200 EI-LBT!

The Boeing 757-200 registered as OH-LBT (manufacturer's serial number MSN28170) first took to the skies in May 1998 with Finnair. The world's sixth oldest airline still in operation today was founded in 1923 and is domiciled in Vantaa with its base at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (HEL). It is a member of the global aviation alliance oneworld, comprising a total of 13 airlines - including American Airlines, British Airline and Qatar Airways. Finnish airspace was the plane's home for a total of 18 years, on medium-range routes – with a one-year guest stint at Italy's Air Europe in 2007, which ceased operations in 2008.


In March 2014 it was "Fáilte go hÉirinn" ("Welcome to Ireland") for our plane - joining the Aer Lingus family with its new registration EI-LBT and christened "St Brendan / Breandan". Originally an all-economy class aircraft with 227 seats, its new airline downsized it to 177 seats - divided into 165 in economy class and twelve in business class.

In this configuration, it flew from Ireland to New York and from Dubai to Washington, among other places, during its six years at the subsidiary of the International Airlines Group. As there were periods when Aer Lingus was only able to use its aircraft at full capacity at times, the "St Brendan" was leased to and operated by Air Contractors and ASL Airlines Ireland.

In 2020, the Boeing 757-200 was removed from service and then recycled at Pinal Airpark in the US state of Arizona.
