Since then SprintAir has undergone a rapid fleet expansion and Skyworld Aviation was involved with supplying 6 aircraft out of their current fleet of 12 Saabs.
 
 
 

Skyworld Aviation is delighted to announce its appointment as remarketing agent for a fleet of five ATR 72-500’s and seven Saab 2000’s operated by Swedish regional airline Braathens Regional. The aircraft are owned by Swedish lessor Erik Thun AB and become available during 2016/17. The ATR 72’s (serial numbers 778, 822, 894, 917, 930) were built between 2008 and 2010 and have largely been operating with Braathens Regional since new. 

 
 
 
Skyworld Aviation is pleased to have arranged a long term ACMI agreement between Danish Air Transport (DAT) of Denmark and Sunrise Airways of Haiti. The aircraft, an ATR 42-320 (serial number 112), is due to start operations in early March and the contract will continue into late 2017. Sunrise Airways currently operates a fleet of three 19 seat Jetstream 32 aircraft, serving Porte au Prince, Cap Haitien, Santo Domingo and Santiago de Cuba.
 
2016 is a momentous year for Skyworld Aviation as it is the 20th year of trading for the aircraft remarketing company. Skyworld Aviation began life as Skyways Aviation back in 1996 - a dedicated aircraft trading/consultancy company working for the Swedish regional airline Skyways. At the time, the airline group operated over 50 aircraft and was majority owned by the Salén family. Skyways Aviation was tasked with evaluating and remarketing surplus fleet, and sourcing aircraft on behalf of the group during a time of great expansion. 

Skyworld Aviation is pleased to have kicked off the year with arranging the sale of an ERJ 145 LR, previously in operation with Aeromexico Connect. Its new owner accepted serial number 145570  on 15th January 2016 and the deal closed on 20th January. For now, the buyer remains confidential. This is Skyworld’s 91st Embraer Jet related transaction, for around 35 clients worldwide which positions us as one of the most successful independent Embraer Jet marketing specialists. We have been privileged to have set many precedents over the years with several Embraer ‘firsts’.....

Last year, Skyworld Aviation announced the sale of two Dash 8 Q400’s to a UK investment firm for onward lease. The transaction was particularly notable since it marked the 500th aircraft transaction for Skyworld - a milestone which we have since well exceeded! We are pleased to announce that the first aircraft, serial number 4354, has now been placed with Aeroflot subsidiary Aurora Airlines of Russia, and it arrived in Moscow in December. According to CH-Aviation, the aircraft will enter into operation on the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk-Tokyo Narita return route, replacing a B737. The airline has acquired a total of three Dash 8 Q400’s (sister ship serial number 4351, and ex-Eznis Airways serial number 4106).
