On behalf of Blue Islands, Skyworld arranges the sale of an ATR

Skyworld Aviation is delighted to have arranged the sale of an ATR 42-320 on behalf of long term Channel Islands- based customer Blue Islands. Serial number 066, registered as G-ZEBS, was sold to charter and cargo specialist Fleet Air of Hungary.  The transaction closed on Wednesday 15th March and the aircraft left the Channel Islands on the same day. This is Fleet Air’s entry into the ATR market, having operated Saab 340’s since gaining its AOC in 2007. The aircraft will undergo a conversion to freight use, eventually operating alongside three Saab 340 freighter’s and one Saab 340 in passenger configuration.
 
Skyworld and Blue Islands have worked together on aircraft placements since 2011, and this is the fifth transaction completed on behalf of the airline. Blue Islands is a privately owned operator, established under its current name in 2006. 

The airline provides passenger service links between Guernsey and Jersey and the UK, serving Bristol, Cardiff, London City and Southampton. It has grown from operating a small fleet of Jetstream 32s to an all-ATR fleet, having purchased their first ATR 42 in 2009. Last year the carrier entered into a franchise partnership with Flybe and now operates a fleet of 5 x ATR 42/72s.

Skyworld Aviation is an aircraft marketing organisation with offices in the UK, France and Canada, specialising in regional aircraft. We offer aircraft marketing and asset management services to a large client base worldwide and we are delighted to be entering our 21st year of trading. To date we have concluded over 530 aircraft related transactions for around 200 clients to a value of almost US$1bn, making Skyworld Aviation one of the most successful aircraft remarketing organisations in the regional market.
