Ka’an Beel Air (KBA)

Mexico’s Quest Mexicana SA de CV signed leases with BAE Systems Regional Aircraft for four BAe 146-200s for operation by new airline Ka’an Beel Air (KBA). Two of the four 146s had been prepared for delivery at Calgary in late 2007 when the airline suddenly announced that they did not want to go ahead. Flight crew who had been trained in Australia have been laid off, and all mention of Ka’an Beel Air excised from Quest’s website. BAE Systems is taking legal action to recover costs from Quest Mexicana for breach of contract.
