In 2017, West Atlantic committed to take four Boeing converted B737-800BCF, with first aircraft being scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2018.
West Atlantic can now announce that a long term agreement is in place to operate all committed aircraft on behalf of an express logistic provider in its current EU-network. The capacity will be phased in as the aircraft are being delivered, with the last aircraft entering service in the first quarter of 2019.
“We are delighted and proud to have secured a long term home for our Next Generation fleet in our core market” stated West Atlantic’s CEO Fredrik Groth, adding “we will now focus all efforts to leverage the NG’s technological advance and efficiency to deliver an excellent service. We are confident that West Atlantic is well positioned in the market going forward being in the forefront of the Next Generation programme.”
