Filipino airline Asian Spirit is negotiating with BAE Systems to acquire four BAe 146s. The aircraft would likely include two series 100s and two series 200s being returned off-lease by Australia’s National Jet Systems. Although negotiations have not yet concluded, one of the aircraft concerned was noted at Adelaide in early January already painted in full Asian Spirit colors. Asian Spirit already operates BAE Systems aircraft, in the form of two ATPs. The airline operates scheduled services throughout the Philippines from Manila. It is owned and operated by a cooperative of its employees.
