Abelo, a leading lessor specialised in the turboprop segment, is proud to announce the successful delivery of MSN875, a newly converted ATR72 cargo aircraft, to Renegade Air. This marks a significant milestone as the first ATR72 cargo conversion for Abelo and introduces ATR as a new aircraft type to Kenya's bustling aviation sector at Wilson Airport.

The ATR72, previously operating for passenger services, has been converted to meet the growing demands for cargo operations, reflecting the robust expansion and evolving requirements of the Kenyan market.

Renegade Air’s decision to upgrade from Dash8 to the larger ATR72 aircraft typifies the success and growth trajectory of Renegade, aiming to enhance their operational capabilities and meet increasing cargo demands. The introduction of MSN875 to the Renegade fleet not only augments their cargo capacity but also marks a pivotal development in the regional aviation landscape.

Stephen Gorman, CEO of Abelo, commented on the delivery, "This project of converting the ATR72 into a cargo aircraft not only extends its useful life well beyond the typical 25 years but also reflects our commitment to innovative and sustainable aviation solutions. We are thrilled to support Renegade Air's expansion strategy and to contribute to the dynamism of Kenya's aviation industry."

Renegade Air is set to commence operations with MSN875 immediately, ensuring enhanced service delivery and operational efficiency across their network. This aircraft will play a crucial role in their continued efforts to adapt to the market's needs and to provide reliable air freight services throughout the region.

Abelo remains committed to supporting Renegade and the development of ATR operations in Africa and the continued journey towards sustainable aviation.
