ACIA Aero Leasing has delivered a further ATR72-212 LCD Freighter to Solenta Aviation. The aircraft will be based in Gabon and operate routes for the DHL West Africa network.

 

This latest conversion brings ACIA's total regional freighter aircraft portfolio to 8 aircraft with further conversions and freighter acquisitions planned for 2021.

 

ACIA CEO, Mick Mooney said “COVID-19 caused some major logistical challenges in completing the conversion of this aircraft and getting it to the customer.  The Technical team at ACIA did a fantastic job navigating through these issues and working with our partners at Empire Aerospace and Solenta Aviation to get the aircraft delivered".

 

He added, "managing this conversion process of ATR aircraft "in-house", further demonstrates our ability to manage the full aircraft life-cycle within the ACIA Aero Capital group which gives us flexibility in our portfolio during downturns like we're seeing now".
