Nationale Régionale Transport ends BAe 146 operations


It has now been confirmed that BAe 146 operations by Gabon’s Nationale Régionale Transport (NRT) ended soon after the collapse of African Airline Investments (AAI). AAI had been operating BAe 146-300 ZS-SOP (msn E3187) on behalf of the Gabonese airline. Like other AAI 146s, ZS-SOP had been operated under the AOC of Lanseria-based Airquarius. With AAI defunct, NRT offered to cover the crews’ salaries if they continued flying, which they did. After ZS-SOP returned to Lanseria for a C Check on November 30, however, NRT reneged on the deal, and so the 146 did not return to Gabon.
