Dublin-based leasing company Elix Aviation Capital has confirmed that it is leasing three Q400 NextGen aircraft from Bombardier Commercial Aircraft which were previously booked by an existing Bombardier customer.
“The Q400 NextGen aircraft is ideally suited to meet the needs of regional airlines as their demand for new-generation turboprops increases worldwide," said Antonis Simigdalas, CEO of Elix. "We have noted the Q400 NextGen aircraft's proven operational capability and performance and are confident that it will be an outstanding asset in our portfolio."
"We are very pleased to add Elix to our family," stated president of Bombardier Commercial Aircraft, Mike Arcamone. “As active investors in turboprop aircraft, and with a worldwide customer base that includes operators on every continent, Elix is well positioned to extend the global reach of the Q400 aircraft even further – bringing the aircraft to an ever increasing number of communities.”
