Darwin Airline adds Saab 2000

Darwin Airline is adding a third Saab 2000 aircraft to its fleet under an operating lease agreement with Rockton Aviation.

The Saab 2000 (MSN 037) aircraft is a 1996-vintage aircraft that was previously operated by OLT Express.

The aircraft follows the lease of two ex-Carpatair Saab 2000s (039, 041) from Nordic Aviation Capital in March.

AeroContractors purchased a pair of Bombardier Q400 (4078, 4079) aircraft with PW150A engines from Walker Aviation Leasing. The 2003-vintage aircraft were previously operated by Flybe.

AeroCentury purchased two Saab 340BPlus (453, 454) aircraft with CT7-9B engines from Lambert Leasing (Saab Aircraft Leasing). The 1998-vintage aircraft are on lease to Nok Mini.
