ACC has successfully facilitated Kam Air’s acquisition of their second ATR 42-500.
This latest acquisition concludes the two-aircraft transaction, with the first having been delivered in November 2018.
This ATR 42 was formerly operated by Oman Air and was procured on a finance lease from an EU-based aircraft lessor.
