I wonder what scheme will it have
I'd rather see some new type in fleet but I guess they wanted to use familiar aircraft and lease it from "friendly" airline.

if i am not mistaken the BAe-146 was actually not leased...Airbus was late in delivering the aircraft OU had ordered and so the BAe-146 was used in the meantime...

Perhaps 9A-CRO can verify this?

I dont think OU had anymore aircrafts on order, The BAE-146 was just to have more capacity for their busy summer tourist season.

i remember reading something about croatia airlines needing to bring in a BAe-146 due to the late delivery of a couple A319s or A320s in Airliners magazine a while back...am I thinking of something else?

As far as I know the story of BAe146 covering late Airbus delivery is true, but only for the first lease

Whoops..
a mistake in previous post
Second BAe was G-OZRH, BPNT was used for a few weeks only after return of OZRH
