Denmark based lessor, Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) has become a member of the Regional Airlines Association of Australia (RAAA), noting a “surge of interest” for new and pre-owned turboprop aircraft in both regional and charter markets in Australia.
“In Australia, there is significant growth occurring on regional and resources routes, as carriers launch new services, expand their existing operations or introduce turboprops in place of less efficient jets…We see significant opportunities to structure operating and finance leases for pre-owned and new turboprop aircraft in Australia,” NAC vice president of sales and acquisitions, Dean Osborne, said.
NAC has a largely turboprop portfolio of 160 aircraft, including ATR 42/72s, Bombardier Dash 8s, Fokker 50s and Saab 2000s, and placed an order for 10 ATR 72-600s and 10 options at this year’s Paris Airshow. Customers include Lufthansa, American Airlines, US Airways, SAS, Flybe, Air Berlin and TACA.
