ACC Aviation, the global aviation consultancy offering asset management and financial solutions to airlines, lessors and financiers, has been appointed as the exclusive remarketing agent by Canadian North to sell its two de Havilland Dash 8-100 aircraft.
The aircraft (MSN 284 and MSN 324) built in the early 1990s are preserved under De Havilland’s storage program, being parked at Calgary International Airport and Edmonton International in Canada, respectively.
Both aircraft are passenger/cargo combi variants, offering operators the ultimate flexibility based on their mission needs.
“ACC Aviation is pleased to have the opportunity to remarket Canadian North’s Dash 8-100s, cementing our expertise in remarketing a variety of aircraft types.” said Robert Sitta, Vice President Asset Management at ACC Aviation.
“Leveraging the extensive relationships of our global offices on five continents, our asset management team has consistently supported aircraft owners (and financiers) around the world during the coronavirus pandemic, ensuring maximum values are extracted from assets, along with managing all elements of the remarketing process.”
“The global presence of ACC Aviation and its strong track record in remarketing regional aircraft were key factors in assigning its team for this task,” commented Shannon Montpellier, VP – Finance at Canadian North.
“These Dash 8s have served us extremely well over the years, reliably performing on numerous passenger and cargo flights.”
Canadian North is a wholly Inuit-owned airline headquartered in Kanata, Ontario. It operates a substantial charter operation and scheduled passenger services to communities in the Northwest Territories, Nunavik and Nunavut. Southern gateways include Edmonton, Montreal and Ottawa.
