Bahrain adds another Avro RJ85


The Bahrain Defence Force has bought one of the former Azzurra Air Avro RJ85s that have been stored at Exeter since that airline’s demise in late 2003. The aircraft had been one of four Avro RJ70s and three RJ85s leased to Azzurra Air by Air Malta. Air Malta repossessed them when Azzurra defaulted on its payments. Air Malta is reported to be negotiating to sell the other two RJ85s to Lufthansa.
