NORDIC Aviation Capital (NAC) has delivered a De Havilland Dash 8-400, MSN 4184, to Link PNG on lease.

The aircraft was originally scheduled to deliver in 2019, however, due to the impact of COVID-19 on travel restrictions the delivery was postponed. The improving conditions and easing of restrictions in Papua New Guinea have allowed for the delivery to take place. MSN 4184 is the final aircraft to deliver as part of a two aircraft transaction.

NAC is the industry’s leading regional aircraft lessor serving approximately 75 airline customers in over 50 countries. NAC’s current fleet of almost 500 aircraft includes ATR 42, ATR 72, De Havilland Dash 8, Mitsubishi CRJ900/1000, Airbus A220 and Embraer E-Jet family aircraft.
