Turkish Airlines to lease out eight Airbus planes
aTP- Arab tourism portal News- Turkish Airlines plans to lease out eight of its Airbus A330-200 aircraft, a move that will help it to reduce costs.
Aircraft remarketing agent Cabot Aviation, a division of Air Partner, said the Airbus aircraft would be made available on a wet lease basis, which includes crew, maintenance and insurance, or over a longer period on dry lease.
“These Turkish Airlines aircraft offer an operator the ability to quickly supplement capacity or test markets,” Cabot’s senior vice president Greg Cope said. Meanwhile, Turkish budget carrier Pegasus said that it might postpone the delivery of new aircraft and sell older planes after a difficult year for tourism.
