Airstream International Group has announced the completion of an ATR 42-500 sale it arranged on behalf an unnamed leasing company to First Air, based in Canada.
The aircraft, serial number 556, had previously been operated by TRIP in Brazil and subsequently Azul in Brazil after the two airlines merged under the latter’s brand.
This is the 25th ATR aircraft that Airstream has placed in the last three years. Airstream director David Skeldon commented, “We have built a strong track record in successfully placing ATR manufactured aircraft in recent years. Our knowledge of the type, coupled with the extensive worldwide relationships that we have developed with ATR owners and operators puts us in a strong position to successfully undertake further remarketing assignments involving the type in the future.”
