Skyworld Aviation is pleased to announce the sale of an ATR 72-500 to a U.S.-based regional aircraft leasing firm. Serial number 685, re-registered as 9S-AAD, will operate with FlyCAA Congo under a lease arrangement, also facilitated by Skyworld. The aircraft was previously operated by Vietnam Airlines and arrived in Kinshasa on 20th October 2019.
FlyCAA now operates two ATR 72-500s and one A321. The airline was established as CAA - Compagnie Africaine d’Aviation in 1992. The operator specialises in scheduled passenger operations based at Kinshasa, serving domestic destinations in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We are delighted to be involved with FlyCAA’s ATR fleet expansion and look forward to a continued close relationship with the operator.
