Skyworld Aviation arranges the sale of ex-Kingfisher ATR 72-500

Acting on behalf of specialist bank and asset manager Investec, Skyworld Aviation is delighted to  announce the sale of an ex-Kingfisher Airlines ATR 72-500 to South Pacific operator Air Calédonie.  Serial number 759, now registered as F-ONCL, was delivered in Singapore last week after completing  an extensive maintenance and refurbishment programme at Fokker Services facility there. It will  depart for New Caledonia later this week.  

Air Calédonie, the domestic carrier of New  Caledonia, , is celebrating its 60th anniversary in  2014, with this latest addition taking the fleet to  a total of four ATRs, comprised of three 72-500s  and one 42-500. ‘Air Cal’ is majority owned by  the New Caledonia Government and services a  network of eight destinations in New Caledonia  hubbing out of the downtown Noumea Magenta  airport. Peter Greensmith, Director at Skyworld Aviation, says “we have worked closely with Investec to  reintroduce the Kingfisher aircraft into service and have been delighted to welcome Air Calédonie as a  new customer.”

Skyworld Aviation has had an excellent start to 2014, having delivered eight aircraft during the last month,  comprising an ATR 72-500, two ATR 72-200’s, three Saab 340B’s, a Jetstream 32 and an Airbus A320, taking  the total number of aircraft transactions to 477. In recent years, Skyworld Aviation has stepped up its  presence in the ATR market and continues to market a portfolio of ATR 72’s.
