Israir to acquire BAe 146-100s?

Israeli airline Israir, which currently operates 3 ATR42s on domestic flights from Tel Aviv to Eilat and short-range charters to destinations such as Cyprus, is reported to be negotiating with BAe-AMJ to aquire 2 BAe 146-100s to undertake longer-range charters. The Israeli Ministry of Transportation is expected to allow all Israeli airlines with suitable equipment to operate international charter flights. Possible destinations for Israir’s charters include Bulgaria, Slovakia, Egypt, and Greece. Finding suitable aircraft may be a problem, however, the one-time glut of idle 146s having completely evaporated.
