Independent aircraft remarketing company Airstream International Group has so far concluded the sale of nine Embraer ERJ-145 regional jets in 2015.
The most recent sale has been two LU variants sold on behalf of Luxair to an operator in Southern Africa. Earlier in the year the company completed the sale of an LR variant to an operator in Mexico and an ER to UK operator BMI regional. Enhance Aero of France acquired an LR formerly operated by City Airline in Sweden and a further four ex FlyBe and British Airways EU variants previously owned by US investors.
Airstream’s Director of Aircraft Sales Alex Vandeleur commented:
“Despite difficult market conditions, we have been able to sell fifty seat jets to operators in many different parts of the world. We have been particularly successful in developing new markets for the aircraft type and expect to announce further sales prior to the year end”.
Airstream has had a long association with Embraer and the ERJ145, having been involved in the programme from the outset. We have concluded sales, leasing and financing transactions involving over seventy ERJ aircraft and look forward to closing more transactions in the future.
