On November 18, the first of the 4 Belgian Air Force aircraft and the stock of spare parts sold to Amelia joined the fleet of 19 aircraft.
The Belgian Ministry of Defence having decided to separate from its commercial fleet in favour of the leasing of two Falcon 7X aircraft, its four ERJ135 and ERJ145 were sold to Amelia (by Regourd Aviation).
The first of the four aircraft successfully joined its new base at Saint-Brieuc in Brittany on November 18. The second transfer is scheduled to take place by the end of the year, followed by the last two Embraer aircraft in 2021.
These aircraft join Amelia’s fleet of 19 aircraft, including three 37-seat ERJ135s and seven 50-seat ERJ145s, as well as ATR 72-600s and 42-500s (and Beechcraft 900s, Falcon 900Xs and Embraer Legacy 600s). They will all operate regional commercial flights within France and Europe.
