Italian start-up Sky Alps receives first two Q400 aircraft
The Italian start-up Sky Alps will soon receive the first two De Havilland Canada Q400 aircraft. These aircraft are from the bankrupt estate of Flybe. Sky Alps has signed a lease agreement and is expected to take delivery of the aircraft within one month.
The home base of Sky Alps is Bolzano (South Tyrol). This summer, Sky Alps will mainly offer flights to destinations within Italy. A major shareholder of Sky Alps is the company FRI-EL Green Power. This company is mainly involved in green energy. Originally, Sky Alps would have started last year, but due to the corona crisis this was postponed. The Q400 aircraft are leased from Chorus Aviation and can seat 78 passengers.
