Angolan carrier Bestfly is to lease two ATR 72-600s from lessor Acia Aero.
ATR, which will provide maintenance and training services to the African carrier, says the aircraft will be delivered in July and used to operate corporate and charter services.
Bestfly chief executive Nuno Pereira describes the ATR 72-600 as "an aircraft that has assured regional connectivity all over the world thanks to its unbeatable operational costs and its dispatch reliability of 99.7%, making it the ideal aircraft for our corporate customers".
The deal, he adds, is "a significant milestone in the Bestfly life, evolving from a purely business aircraft operator to a commuter aircraft operator always looking to find solutions that best suit our corporate clients needs through strategic relationships such as the one with Acia and ATR".
Cirum's Fleets Analyzer shows Bestfly currently operates a mix of Bombardier Learjet/Global Express and Gulfstream aircraft.
