DAP Mineral Airways retires its last Boeing 737-200

Type Retired: July 12, 2019 (El Salvador, Chile - Santiago with CC-AAG)

There a very few Boeing 737-200s still in airline passenger service. Now there is one less.

On Friday, July 12 2019, the last Boeing 737-200 revenue flight of DAP Mineral Airways (Aerovías DAP subsidiary) was operated. The pictured CC-AAG (msn 23608) (above) flew a round trip between Santiago (SCL) and the northern city of El Salvador (Ricardo García Posada airfield, SCES).

The other two Boeing 737-200s were CC-ABD (msn 22736) and CC-CTK (msn 22402), that have been out of service for a few months. Sources from the company said CC-AAG will be flown to its new owner in Alaska, while the remaining 737s are to be scrapped.

The Boeing 737-200s were mostly used for charter flights by mining companies, transporting personnel between Santiago and cities in northern Chile, and also carrying soccer/football teams and supporters to neighboring countries.
DAP will continue operating charters with its current fleet of BAe146/Avro RJ.
