  • West Air bids to replace BAe 748s with ATR 72s

    News | 22 Mar 2005 00:00

    <p>Swedish freight operator West Air Europe is looking to replace its seven BAe 748s with leased ATR 72s to meet expected growth in demand for containerised and bulk cargo services in southern and central Europe.</p> <p>Discussions are under way with at least two potential lessors for two ATRs, but a larger fleet could follow if the type proves successful, says West Air managing director Gustaf Thureborn. The company is also studying possible expansion of its BAe ATP fleet as alternative replacements for the 748s from late 2006.</p> <p>The ATR 72 is a natural successor to the ageing 748, says Thureborn, and a final decision on whether to acquire the aircraft will be based on "customer requirements". The last of 13 ATPs leased from BAE Systems Regional Aircraft's asset management unit will be delivered in May after a large freight door conversion by Romania's Romaero. The company will seek ATR 72s equipped with a large cargo door installed by France's Aeroconseil or Italy's Aeronavalihttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/West-Air-bids-to-replace-BAe-748s-with-ATR-72s-195520/
