Aircraft asset manager, Stratos, has announced that it recently arranged the sale of two Airbus A330-200 aircraft for Etihad Airways.
The activity was part of a continued deal flow involving 10 widebodies to different buyers and lessees over the past 12 months.
Stratos states that the engines from the aircraft, MSNs 825 and 831, were sold to a large international operator while the airframes were sold in a separate transaction to AerFin.
Jamie Carter, commercial director at Stratos, said: “The placement of these aircraft has been challenging but we are delighted to have assisted Etihad in finding an optimal solution for the aircraft.
“This sale confirms not only our ability to find aircraft solutions for small and large airline clients alike, but also our ability to place widebody and narrowbody aircraft in all types of markets.”
Stratos is the only independent aircraft asset manager holding a Select Servicer qualification from Standard & Poors.
