Bulgarian Air Charter is in the process of completing the purchase of four Boeing MD-82s, which were previously operated by Alitalia.
Two aircraft (MSNs 53217, 53230) have already closed, says Bulgarian, while another two (MSNs 53218, 53233) are to follow. The company is buying the aircraft from trader and remarketing specialist Engage Aviation.
Engage Aviation acquired a total of eight MD-82s from Alitalia earlier this year. The remaining four MD-82s are still being advertised by Engage Aviation.
In 2010 Bulgarian Air Charter purchased eight MD-82s from the administrators of Alitalia in two separate transactions. The aircraft were manufactured between 1989 and 1995.
