Singapore-based Phoenix Aircraft Leasing has purchased an ATR 72-200 from Eurolot in a transaction arranged by Aelis Group.

The 1994-vintage aircraft (MSN 402) will be operated by United Airways of Bangladesh, confirms Aelis.

The transaction marks the second time this year Phoenix Aircraft Leasing acquires a Eurolot aircraft. In March it purchased an 42-500 (MSN 559).

Aelis has also arranged the sale of two 1991-vintage 72-200 (MSNs 246, 272) to Avanti Air this year.

Aelis Group has won the mandate to exclusively sell a total of 11 ATR aircraft owned by Eurolot last year. The company is still remarketing six 72-200s and one 42-500 aircraft.
