Tokyo-based Skymark Airlines will take delivery of a third new General Electric CF6-80C2-powered Boeing 767-300ER from International Lease Finance (ILFC) in March next year on a six-year lease. Air Jamaica is close to completing a deal with ILFC to take two ex-Air Canada Airbus A340-300s in exchange for returning its existing aircraft early. Air Jamaica hopes to take delivery of the two aircraft in March and May next year. Turkish Airlines (THY) is to sell its seven GE CF6-80C2-powered Airbus A310-300s over the next two years - three in 2002 and four in 2003. No replacement plans have been announced for the A310s. American Trans Air has taken delivery of its first two of 10 Rolls-Royce RB211-535E4-powered Boeing 757-300s. Deliveries of the remaining eight aircraft on order will be completed by May.
