Company sells jet to African carrier
A company in the region has sold a refurbished jet to an African carrier.
AeroVision International in Muskegon said last month that it sold the 50-seat ERJ-145EP to Groupe Transair in Dakar, Senegal.
The jet was refurbished by AeroVision to Groupe Transair’s specifications and painted with a newly designed livery.
Jeff Bardal, AeroVision’s VP of aircraft sales and leasing, said the company was “pleased” Groupe Transair selected it once again.
He said the refurbished ERJ-145EP is “perfectly suited to their operational requirements.”
AeroVision and Groupe Transair have also signed a spare parts support agreement that will enable Groupe Transair to maintain the “high level of dispatch reliability they require.”
AeroVision previously sold another refurbished ERJ-145EP to Groupe Transair.
AeroVision said both jets will operate on routes within western Africa out of Groupe Transair’s hub in Dakar, Senegal.
With the recent shutdown of Senegal Airlines, Groupe Transair is re-building the capacity lost with the closure of Senegal’s former regional carrier.
AeroVision International, founded in 2003, sells airplane parts and refurbished planes all over the world.
