Russian VIM Airlines To Take 12 B757

Fri Aug 05, 2005 8:39 pm

I didn't know the EBRD actually supports airlines. But then, why not - airlines are companies like any other. I wonder who they will buy their 757s from. IB perhaps?


The EBRD loan will finance the acquisition of a fleet of 12 used Boeing 757-200 aircraft. VIM Airlines, an airline established in Russian Federation, will operate the 12 acquired aircraft. Approximately 85% of the fleet capacity will be used on major international charter routes from Russia and the remaining 15% of the capacity will be used on a number of domestic regular routes. [...]

VIM Airlines, a private aviation company headquartered in Moscow. VIM Airlines is operating on all major Russian international charter routes and on a number of regular routes within Russia. The Borrower will be Meridian Leasing, a special purpose leasing vehicle, which will own and finance lease the aircraft to VIM Airlines.

I scratch my head, therefore I am.

Aren't these the ex Condor and AmTrans machines. I thought VIM were already up to 12 752's in service.

Just checked.

They've already got 12 ex Condor in service and at least 4 ex AmTrans on the way
