TUI fly Nordic (6B, Stockholm Arlanda) took delivery of its first B787-9 as it plans to resume widebody operations after a year-long gap.

SE-RFZ (msn 44579) was registered in Sweden on September 21, 2021, but has yet to be deployed into revenue service by the Swedish unit of TUI Group. The 4.4-year-old Boeing aircraft was previously operated by TUI Airways as G-TUIK since new. It was retired by the British airline on September 2, following its last flight from Montego Bay to Manchester Int'l, and deregistered on September 20. It is owned by TUI's in-house financing arm, TUI Travel Aviation Finance.

TUI fly Nordic's current fleet comprises only two B737-800s although it used to operate a total of six B767-300(ER)s in the past, with the last two retired from active service in November and December 2020. Since then, it has not had any widebody aircraft.

For its part, TUI Airways continues to operate eight B787-8s and five -9s in terms of its widebody fleet. The only TUI Group unit with no widebody aircraft in its fleet is now TUI fly (Germany).
