Ansett administrator to repossess Orionair BAe 146s

Korda-Mentha Administrators, the administrator for bankrupt Ansett, is planning to repossess the two BAe 146s it had leased to Spanish airline Orionair, series 300 EC-JVJ (msn E3195) and EC-JVO (msn E3179). Orionair has been struggling since the abrupt cancellation of its contract to operate a BAe 146 in Italy on behalf of VolaSalerno, and its two 146s have been parked at Madrid’s Barajas airport for some time. Because it would probably take some time to place the aircraft under current market conditions and the resulting lease rates would be low, Korda-Mentha indicated it is likely to have both aircraft parted out.
