TrueNoord, the specialist regional aircraft lessor, has signed a long-term operating lease with Silver Airways for an ATR 72-600. The turboprop entered Silver Airways’ fleet at the end of May and is flying in Silver’s network within the southeast United States and the Bahamas.
Garry Topp, Sales Director for TrueNoord responsible for the Americas, comments: “As Silver Airways transitions its entire fleet to ATRs we’re especially pleased to provide this aircraft at a time when they are seeing rapid growth in demand. Identifying opportunities for re-marketing and successful placement of our aircraft into new markets that consolidate our growth in a challenging environment is a cornerstone of our business strategy. Aptly named ‘Silver Warrior’, and bearing new brand livery, this is TrueNoord’s first turboprop placement in North America and our first aircraft on lease with Silver Airways.”
Prior to transitioning to Silver Airways, the ATR 72-600 (MSN1038) was previously leased by TrueNoord to Nordica, the Estonian carrier. It was reconfigured to U.S. specifications at ATR Francazal near Toulouse, France prior to ferry flight to Florida.Email Post to a Friend
