Aergo Capital Limited has successfully completed the delivery of a single DHC 8-400 aircraft, manufacturer serial number 4088, to Luxwing.

The recent aircraft delivery signifies the commencement of a two-aircraft deal with Luxwing, both scheduled for delivery within the current year.

Luxwing – Aergo collaboration

Fred Browne, Chief Executive Officer of Aergo, was enthusiastic about the recent accomplishment, stating, “We are absolutely delighted to unveil the successful delivery of a DHC-8-400 aircraft to Luxwing.”

“Our sincere appreciation extends to every individual who played a role in finalizing this transaction. This milestone marks the integration of Luxwing into our esteemed lessee portfolio, and we eagerly anticipate a prosperous and enduring partnership.”

Luxwing’s Chief Executive Officer, Capt. Giuseppe Sapia, provided his own insights on the occasion. He underscored the significance of these two Dash 8-Q400 aircraft joining Luxwing’s existing fleet,

“With the addition of these two Dash 8-Q400 aircraft to its fleet, Luxwing expands its aircraft offerings, which have been primarily characterized, until now, by executive aircraft, thus becoming a key player in the Mediterranean region in the “charter on demand” and ACMI segments,” Sapia said.

This strategic expansion positions Luxwing as a prominent contender within the Mediterranean region’s aviation landscape, particularly in the dynamic spheres of “charter on demand” and ACMI services (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance).

Second delivery in September

The finalization of the two aircraft deal followed a close collaboration with Aergo Capital.

Capt. Sapia expressed his admiration for the Aergo Capital team, singling out individuals such as Ally, Mike, Niamh, and Frank for their exceptional professionalism, straightforward approach, pragmatic problem-solving, and solution-driven mindset.

This close collaboration spanned the entirety of the project’s lifecycle, from its inception to the culminating delivery of the inaugural aircraft.

In a united front, both Luxwing and Aergo Capital are resolute in their commitment to continue this partnership. As evidence of this commitment, they have already set their sights on the second aircraft’s imminent delivery, scheduled to augment Luxwing’s fleet in September 2023.

The anticipation of this forthcoming addition is palpable, as it promises to further enhance Luxwing’s offerings and satisfy the discerning needs of their clientele.
