Rex sells two Saab 340As to SprintAir

9th April 2009 - 09:50 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Regional Express (Rex) has concluded the sale of two Saab 340A aircraft to Polish airline SprintAir. The two aircraft will be ferried out of Australia within the next two weeks.

The sale is part of the phasing out of Rex's first generation Saab 340As and the introduction of 25 newer Saab 340BPlus aircraft into the fleet. Rex previously sold Saab 340As to Bridges Worldwide Express in July 2008 and Argentine airline SOL Líneas Aéreas in January 2009.

Commenting on the sale, Rex's managing director, Jim Davis, remarked, “The sale of these two aircraft, along with the Saab 340A freighter conversion programme for our wholly-owned subsidiary Pel-Air, means that there is only one A-model remaining in the Rex fleet and that will be phased out by the end of the year.

“While the A-models have served us well over the years, the BPlus models are faster with a larger payload and so will provide a better service to our customers,” Davis added.
