Aircraft investment manager and remarketing specialist Avinco has placed an Airbus A321 aircraft on lease to Russia's Kolavia-Metrojet on behalf of a subsidiary of TUI Travel.
The 1998-vintage aircraft (MSN 0852) is leased for a period of five years.
The aircraft has been operated by Thomsonfly (UK) since new. Avinco is working under an exclusive remarketing mandate from TUI and has added the aircraft to its growing managed portfolio.
"We are really thrilled to be assisting TUI to find a solution for their surplus aircraft whilst helping Kolavia to expand," says Avinco's chief executive officer Francois Gautier.
Avinco says it now concentrating on selling the aircraft with the new Kolavia lease attached.
