Magellan purchases ex-American Eagle ATR 72
Magellan Aviation Group has completed the acquisition of another ATR 72-210 aircraft with PW127 engines from Nordic Aviation Capital.
The 1992-vintage aircraft, MSN 309, was operated by American Eagle's wholly-owned subsidiary Executive Airlines since 2002. The ATR 72 is the second of a three-aircraft transaction. Last month Nordic Aviation Capital sold a 1991-vintage ATR 72-200 (MSN 263) to Magellan Aviation Group.
Trip Linhas Aéreas leased an ATR 72-500 (580) aircraft with PW127F engines from ATR Asset Management. The 1999-vintage aircraft was previously operated by Air Nostrum.
