Acting on behalf of Blue Islands, Skyworld Aviation has arranged the sale of one BAE Jetstream 32 for operation by Aeroandinas in Venezuela.
The aircraft was painted at Airbourne Colours in Bournemouth, UK, prior to departure on its long ferry flight over the Arctic from Guernsey to Santo Domingo, Venezuela. It is the first passenger aircraft to go into operation with Aeroandinas, a start-up airline based at La Fria Airport in the mountainous state of Táchira in Western Venezuela, where it will fly local scheduled passenger routes.
Juliet Hewitt, marketing manager at Skyworld Aviation, commented, “This has been an interesting project and we are delighted to have assisted Aeroandinas with their first aircraft acquisition. We are also proud to have assisted Blue Islands with the timely disposal of this Jetstream, after they recently took delivery of their first ATR 72.”
