This lease placement marks the initial pair of aircraft to be assigned to certain airlines using Abelo’s orderbook of 30 aircraft.

Captain Konstantinos Iliakis, CEO at SKY express said the following on this:

“We are excited to continue our fleet renewal along with the ongoing partnership between SKY express and Abelo.”

“This upgrade introduces two new ATR72-600 aircraft into our state-of-the-art fleet, supplementing those previously announced at the beginning of 2024.”

“Our fleet will now include 14 ATRs, of which 10 are brand-new ATR72-600 model. This expansion reflects our confidence in the sustainable growth of the Greek regional market in the coming years and underscores our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint.”

“Our efforts to standardize our fleet are evident, as we strive to provide our customers with the best possible experience while meeting our ambitious decarbonization goals.”

“The positive outcomes of our strategic decisions are poised to yield significant benefits for our passengers, the SKY express team, our partners and all our stakeholders”.

Adding to this was Stephen Gorman, CEO of Abelo:

“We are delighted by the robust demand for new turboprop aircraft and are thrilled to continue our long-standing partnership with the SKY express team.”

“The incorporation of the ATR72-600 with the new XT engines aligns seamlessly with SKY express’ strategy of expanding its environmentally conscious fleet,”

All eyes will be on future fleet expansion for the Greek carrier as well as the assignment of other aircraft to prospective airlines by Abelo.
