Viking Air Limited of Victoria, BC, Canada and Aerostar Leasing Group, have this week signed an agreement for four (4) DHC-6 Twin Otter Series 400 for commercial operations in Asia. Aerostar is a new customer for the Twin Otter Series 400, and are scheduled to receive their aircraft in 2015.
“We are pleased to welcome another customer to the growing Twin Otter Series 400 family, and trust Aerostar Leasing will be as satisfied with their new aircraft as our repeat customers are,” commented David Curtis, Viking president & CEO. He added, “Aerostar is well versed in the aviation industry, so we are confident that they will be successful incorporating the new Series 400 Twin Otters into their operations.”
With Twin Otter Series 400 in operation in 16 countries and a backlog exceeding $400M, the Series 400 is now confirmed as the best-selling next generation turboprop aircraft in its class. Viking provides OEM support for the worldwide fleet of de Havilland legacy aircraft (DHC-1 through DHC- 7) and forms part of Westerkirk Capital Inc, a Canadian private investment firm with substantial holdings in the hospitality, aviation, and real estate sectors.
