West Atlantic will sell two BAE ATP Freighter aircraft to Nairobi, Kenya-based EnComm in a deal that also commits to spares, engineering and training support.
The airline decided in 2017 to start marketing the aircraft for dry-leasing and sale, and as part of the transaction, West Atlantic also brokered an additional two BAE ATP passenger aircraft owned by one of the Group’s collaborated partners.
West Atlantic vice president for aircraft management, Robert Drews says: “This transaction marks the first step in reallocating our ATP aircraft portfolio into markets and geographies that can capitalise in full on the benefits of this efficient turboprop.
“We are now dedicated to providing all necessary support to ensure that the operation is set up as efficiently as possible.”
West Atlantic has a fleet of 40 BAE ATP-Fs, two Bombardier CRJ200-PFs, seven Boeing 737-300SFs, four Boeing 737-400SFs and three Boeing 767-200SFs.
It has also committed to four Boeing 737-800BCFs and signed a long term agreement to commit to all the aircraft on behalf of an express logistics provider in its European Union network.
