Russian charter airline Azur Air has taken delivery of one more Boeing 767-300, the seventh in the carrier’s fleet. The aircraft will enter service within the next several days. It is currently undergoing customs procedures.

The aircraft, with tail number VP-BUX, was built in January 1991 according to open sources, which makes it the oldest aircraft in the Russian carrier’s fleet. Its previous operator was Aeromexico.
