Aerotask aviation consultancy, part of ACC Aviation Group, has successfully completed a number of aircraft transactions on behalf of Kam Air, the largest airline in Afghanistan.
Aerotask facilitated the acquisition of three ex-Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-300 aircraft for Kam Air, in line with the airline’s strategy to modernize and expand its existing narrowbody fleet. Accordingly, Kam Air has now retired its McDonnell Douglas MD-80 aircraft in favor of the relatively newer Boeing 737 Classics.
Aerotask has also worked to secure an additional Airbus A340-300, the fourth in Kam Air’s fleet of A340s, which was acquired in response to robust international passenger demand.
Asset Manager, Ahmed Zafar, comments: “It has been our pleasure to partner with Kam Air on numerous projects over the years and being an integral part of the airline’s rapid growth.
We look forward to continuing our collaboration and assisting Kam Air in achieving their strategic objectives.”

ACC’s Director of Consulting, Rob Watts, reflects on the rise of sustainable investing, the growing importance of ESG in aviation financing and the implications for airlines and investors.
