Monaco, 18 January 2024 | Stratos, the only independent aircraft asset manager holding a Select Servicer qualification from Standard & Poors, has arranged the sale of two Airbus A330-200 aircraft for Etihad Airways in the past two weeks, continuing a deal flow involving 10 widebodies to different buyers and lessees over the past 12 months.

The engines from the aircraft, MSNs 825 and 831, were sold to a large international operator while the airframes were sold in a separate transaction to AerFin.

Jamie Carter, Commercial Director Stratos said: “The placement of these aircraft has been challenging but we are delighted to have assisted Etihad in finding an optimal solution for the aircraft. This sale confirms not only our ability to find aircraft solutions for small and large airline clients alike, but also our ability to place widebody and narrow body aircraft in all types of markets.”
