Avia Solutions Group has signed an agreement to acquire cargo carrier Bluebird Nordic.
Gediminas Ziemelis, founder and chairman of the board of directors of Avia Solutions Group, commented: “I am utterly pleased to have had an opportunity to acquire such a competent and reputable company. With this new acquisition, Avia Solutions Group steps into the narrow-body ACMI cargo business. Being the biggest passenger ACMI group with one of the largest corporate airline in Europe, we were actually missing cargo operations.
“Differently from long-haul wide-body cargo business, narrow-body demand is growing fast, driven by electronic trade and others. Today, we own 7 AOCs in various countries and our plan is to achieve synergy between pilots pool, maintenance and lease costs”.
Steinn Logi Björnsson, managing director of Bluebird Nordic, added: “We are happy that Bluebird is now a member of Avia Solutions Group and look forward to working with the new owners to grow and strengthen the company. We are certain that the company, its employees and customers will feel the benefits of belonging to such a strong aviation industry player”
