Bangladeshi start-up Air Astra has unveiled its second aircraft, as it awaits to receive its air operator’s certificate.
The airline says in a statement its second aircraft, which is also an ATR 72-600, has rolled out of the Airbourne Colours in the UK sporting a new livery.
The picture issued with the statement shows the aircraft still sporting the aircraft registration, LZ-DAI, under the previous operator, Bulgarian carrier GullivAir.
AirAstra’s first aircraft is also an ex-GullivAir ATR 72-600, LZ-DAJ. GullivAir had leased both aircraft from DAE Aerospace.
Air Astra said publicly a few months ago that it hopes to start operations in September and that it has secured three leased ATR 72-600s.
Feature picture, from Air Astra, shows its second ATR 72-600 after it came out of the paint shop at Airbourne Colours in the UK.
