AV Buys Fokker-50 Fleet

Wed Jun 29, 2005 2:49 am

Avianca has bought its 10-strong Fokker-50 fleet from Debis Air Finance for about 22 million dollars. The planes were delivered new in 1994 and leased from the dutch company until now.

I guess they bought them so they can shift them between the different Synergy Airlines without having to deal with the lessor. Good thinking.
