Jetcraft Commercial Limited, the commercial aircraft division of global aircraft trading firm Jetcraft, has secured the complex acquisition and placement of 10 Embraer ERJ145 jets from HOP!, the regional arm of Air France.
Seven jets have been placed with operators and aircraft lessors across various locations, including Nigeria, Eswatini, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Following these transactions, several ERJ145s have since entered into service with airlines in Africa and Europe. The final three aircraft are all committed and due to be delivered imminently.
Raphaël Haddad, President of Jetcraft Commercial, says: “This complex acquisition and placement has involved coordination between several different entities, which is an additional achievement due to our wealth of experience in structuring multi-party transactions. This is a significant deal for us, and we are proud that Jetcraft Commercial was able to quickly place these aircraft where they are needed.
“So far, all except one of the HOP! aircraft have been sold on in the African region, demonstrating the expansion in regional connectivity across the continent and the increasing interest in the ERJ145 by airlines and charter providers.”
