Air India has issued a tender to offer up to three Boeing 777-200LRs powered by General Electric GE90 engines, as the carrier seeks to exit operation of the aircraft type.

The tender document shows the aircraft (MSNs 36305, 36306 and 36307) were manufactured in 2009.

The aircraft, which are part of a fleet of eight 777-200LRs, are configured with 238 seats: eight in first class, 35 in business class and 195 in economy.

The sale will end Air India’s long-running efforts to sell off its 777-200LR fleet.

Over the past two years, Air India has issued tenders for the sale, dry lease or sublease of five 2007/08-vintage 777LRs.

Five units (MSNs 36300, 36301, 36302, 36303 and 36304) were sold earlier this year to Etihad Airways.

Under the new request for proposals, bids are due 12 May.
