Skyworld Aviation is pleased to announce the sub lease of a Saab 2000 from Eastern Airways of the UK to Skywork Airlines, Switzerland. Technical acceptance of serial number 036 (G-CDEB), took place in Humberside, UK on 9th April. The ferry flight to Skywork Airlines' operational base in Berne, Switzerland took place shortly afterwards and operated under the existing G registration. The aircraft will formally be delivered in Switzerland and will bear the registration HB-IZT, joining the existing fleet of four Saab 2000s.
This latest transaction marks the third Saab 2000 placed on lease to Skywork Airlines by Skyworld, with an additional aircraft scheduled for delivery in 2nd quarter. Skyworld also negotiated a lease extension on an existing Saab 2000 late last year. Skyworld’s relationship with Skywork Airlines goes back to 2011 when we facilitated the sale of two Dash 8 Q400’s to the airline.
We are also delighted to mention that Eastern Airways has appointed Skyworld to provide lease management services for the length of the lease term. Skyworld is proud to call Eastern Airways a long term client, having been involved in aircraft transactions for the airline group as far back as 1999. We have arranged transactions involving 24 aircraft ranging from 19 seat turboprops to 50 seat jets and we are proud to continue the relationship.
