Cello ceases operations

Birmingham-based Avro RJ operator Cello Aviation ceased operations on 12 October. Cello had been operating Avro RJ100 G-ILLR (msn E3379) on behalf of Air France┬ásubsidiary Hop!, but the aircraft had twice been grounded for extended periods by technical problems, and the airline’s Boeing 737 had been covering for her. The 737 and RJ100 G-ILLR were both ferried home on 12 October, and G-ILLR was then ferried to Cranfield. Cello began operations in 2010, with BAe 146-200 G-RAJJ (msn E2108) in a VIP configuration. Avro RJ85 G-LENM (msn E2273) was added in 2013, but then returned off-lease in 2015. G-ILLR had been added in January, and G-RAJJ was sold off shortly thereafter.
