Amelia International has taken delivery of its first freighter, an ATR72-212F leased from TrueNoord in a four-year operating lease agreement.

The aircraft, MSN 461, was previously leased by ASL Airlines Ireland and will move into Amelia International’s regional fleet and be based in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Matija Krajnc, Managing Director of Amelia International says: “Leasing the ATR72-212F from TrueNoord enables us to build upon Amelia Group’s fully integrated aeronautics services to fast-track our cargo expansion. We aim to offer our cargo clients the same professional and reliable service that we are known for in passenger operations from our bases in Europe and Africa.”

Amelia International operates ad-hoc charter and regular regional flights in Europe and Africa and has a fleet of 14 aircraft consisting of Embraer 135/145s and ATR42/72s.
