Aviation Capital Solutions has acquired five BAe 146-300 jetliners to use in the European and African charter markets. The aircraft are expected to be delivered in June and will be initially based in Europe on aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance contracts. They will cater for last minute capacity requests from charter companies and scheduled airlines. Maintenance will be provided by Avman Engineering. “We believe that the benefits of operating the BAe 146 in our chosen market will give us the necessary competitive edge to win business and this acquisition has already led to positive enquiries,” said Aviation Capital Solutions Managing Director Jeff Ashfield.
