Darwin Saabs put up for sale

NEWS FLASH


Six Saab 2000 aircraft owned by the bankrupt Swiss carrier Darwin Airline, also known as Adria Airways Switzerland, have been put up for sale. Liquidators have estimated the airline's assets to be worth 25 million francs, almost all of which is attributed to the six aircraft. Negotiations with interested parties are already underway, although their names are being kept confidential. Adria Airways has based its upcoming 2018 summer season expansion from Ljubljana entirely on the use of the Saab aircraft, which it planned to operate as Darwin's parent company, before the Swiss airline declared bankruptcy. The turboprops have been grounded since Darwin ceased operations in late November 2017. Swiss prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation into the company's collapse.

    1. Like it says in the article the current owner is Darwin Airline which has declared bankruptcy and its assets (these planes) are now being sold. It is likely Adria will either buy them, or a leasing company will buy them and lease them immediately to Adria.
