Cabot Aviation, a division of Air Partner plc and a leading aircraft remarketing agent, has been exclusively authorised by Turkish Airlines to remarket eight Airbus A330-200s for sublease – either dry or wet. All eight aircraft were built between 2007 and 2011 to a common specification with passenger seats in a 24J + 255Y configuration. The aircraft have PW4168A-1D engines and a 233-tonne maximum take-off weight (MTOW).
The authorisation concludes a successful month for Cabot, in which it also announced the placement of an Embraer 170 aircraft with Austrian operator People’s Viennaline on behalf of AerFin Ltd (UK). The aircraft, serial number MSN 0093, was delivered to its new owner on 10 November.
Cabot Aviation’s Senior Vice President, Greg Cope, said: “We are proud to have been chosen by Turkish Airlines for this important project, which follows other wide body aircraft remarketing authorisations received recently from leading carriers including China Airlines, Kenya Airways and SriLankan Airlines. These Turkish Airlines aircraft offer an operator the ability to quickly supplement capacity or test markets on a wet lease basis or over a longer term on dry lease. The eight aircraft also have the potential to form their own “mini fleet”, even if an operator already has A330s with another engine type or configuration”.
