Today, former Shaheen Air Airbus A330-300 registration AP-BKM departed from Dublin Airport, Ireland, for flight to Orlando Sanford International Airport, USA, where she'll be parted-out, broken up & scrapped. AP-BKM departed from Dublin as leasing company AerCap aircraft.

So, apparently it's the last flight for this A330.

AP-BKM has landed at Tampa International Airport.

Maybe Orlando Sanford International Airport is closed due to Hurricane Matthew.

Departure of former Shaheen Air Airbus A330-300 registration AP-BKM as leasing company AerCap aircraft from Dublin Airport on October 6, 2016.

Nice caption by photographer:
A rather fitting tribute to an old friend! Current fleet salutes an old timer.

Thursday 6th October 2016, the one time Aer Lingus A330, EI-CRK and more recently AP-BKM with Pakistani carrier Shaheen Air departs Dublin Airport for the final time bound for Orlando Sanford Airport in the USA for part out & scrap.

While waiting to line up on runway 10 for departure "Shamrock 146" operated by A330 EI-DUO arrives in from San Francisco framing AP-BMK for a picture perfect moment, whilst right behind AP-BMK was another Aer Lingus A330 EI-EDY operating the "Shamrock 105" flag service to New York JFK. Nice to see the former EI-CRK was in good company on her final transatlantic voyage!
