TNT Airways ended BAe 146QT operations in late September, when it transferred BAe 146-300QT OO-TAH (msn E3168) to TNT’s Spanish subsidiary, Pan Air Líneas Aéreas. OO-TAH operated her last service—a roundtrip from Liège to Nürnberg and back—on 25 September. She became EC-MID and re-entered service on 6 October. TNT Airways was established in February 2000 as TNT’s in-house airline, taking over many of the BAe 146QTs that had previously been operated on TNT’s behalf by a variety of European airlines; the others remained with Pan Air. Over the years, TNT Airways operated a total of 15 146QTs (5 -200QTs and 10 -300QTs), occasionally swapping aircraft with Pan Air. Within the last year, TNT Airways’s remaining 200QTs have been sold or broken up, while the 300QTs have been transferred to Pan Air.
