Cabot Aviation - 18 feb 2016
Cabot Aviation, a division of Air Partner plc and a leading aircraft remarketing agent, is pleased to announce that the first former Kenya Airways B777-200ER has been delivered to Omni Air International, a US based airline providing global passenger ACMI, wet lease and charter programs.
The aircraft was originally delivered to Kenya Airways in 2007 and was operated by the airline on its scheduled routes - especially the long haul routes to Asia and Europe.
The aircraft is powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 892B engines. It was announced last month that Kenya Airways had entered into a sale agreement with Omni Air International to purchase two of its B777-200ER aircraft, the second of which will be delivered shortly.
Cabot Aviation was appointed as Kenya Airways’ exclusive aircraft remarketing agent in August 2015 for four B777-200ERs, with the serial numbers 33681, 33682, 33683 and 36124. Kenya Airways continues to retain Cabot Aviation to remarket the two remaining Boeing B777-200ERs, which are available for immediate sale.
Tony Whitty, Managing Director of Cabot Aviation, said: “We are delighted to have arranged this sale to Omni International and that the first aircraft has been promptly delivered. We wish Omni every success with its new B777-200ER, and look forward to the delivery of the second. Our focus is now on finding a new owner for the remaining two aircraft on behalf of Kenya Airways.”
