On 21 November 1977, Cathay purchased the aircraft outright and it was re-registered VR-HHX.

Sold to Norske Finance Nederland BV in December 1995 and re-registered TF-ABH, the aircraft was immediately leased to Air Atlanta Icelandic until withdrawn from service in April 1999. It was then stored at Manston, Kent, UK, where she was eventually broken up in November 1999. Whilst with Air Atlanta the aircraft undertook several sub-leases with Peach Air.
