BAE Systems Asset Management has placed a
further two BAe 146 regional jetliners with Indonesian operators.
The first aircraft is a BAe 146-200 (msn E2204)
which has been bought by PT Nusantara Air Charter (NAC). The
aircraft was delivered in mid-June. This deal follows rapidly on
the brokered sale by Asset Management of a BAe 146-200QT (Quiet
Trader) freighter to NAC at the beginning of June.
NAC has been operating for a number of years and is owned by local
business interests. The company has a licence for both passenger
and cargo charters. The Series 200 is configured in a 78 seat
layout, with 12 business class seats four-abreast and 66 economy
class seats at six-abreast.
The second aircraft is
also a BAe 146-200 (msn E2139) in passenger configuration which
has been acquired by PT Aviastar Mandiri, a certified air charter
operator which flies charters principally on routes in Borneo and
Papua. The company operates on behalf of international oil and
mining companies as well as Indonesian organisations such as
private and state-owned companies and government agencies.
The aircraft, which is configured in a 98 seat,
six-abreast layout will be delivered in July.
