Aerotask has successfully transacted a McDonnell Douglas MD-83 (MSN 49855) aircraft on behalf of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON), a body established by the Federal Government of Nigeria. Everts Air Cargo, an Alaska-based cargo carrier, has acquired the aircraft to support its existing fleet of five MD-83s.
The subject aircraft was formerly operated by the now defunct Afrijet Airlines and was seized by AMCON, among other assets. Aerotask has been the sole advisor to AMCON concerning their aviation-related portfolio since 2016.
“This asset was undoubtedly one of the most challenging ones we have been mandated with and successfully placing it has yet again proven the mettle and capability of our team.” – Robert Sitta, Vice President Aircraft Leasing & Trading.
