New Turkish airline Park Express is encountering difficulties in securing financing and the necessary government approvals. In early December, it appeared that these problems would result in a delay, and possibly an outright cancellation, of its order for five Avro RJ100s. The first two RJ100s for Park Express were rolled out at the time, in partial colors, and looked likely to become white-tails. The problems now appear to have been sorted out, however, and work on preparing the aircraft for delivery — now scheduled for early 1999 — has resumed.
