Avion Express (X9, Vilnius) has announced it has leased a further three A320 aircraft, bringing the total fleet of the Lithuanian ACMI/charter provider to eighteen Airbus narrowbodies.

The aircraft are all ex-Sky Angkor Airlines stock and have already been wet-leased to Thomas Cook Group carriers. LV-NVX (msn 2689) and LV-NVY (msn 1909) are wet-leased by Condor, while LV-NVZ (msn 921) flies for Thomas Cook Airlines UK.

"In times of constantly growing demand for ACMI services, we have worked consistently to increase our fleet and strengthen our position in the market by assisting our clients worldwide. During 2018 and beyond we will continue working hard to further strengthen our stand as a forward-thinking leader in the ACMI market," CEO Darius Kajokas has said.

According to the ch-aviation fleets module, the Lithuanian ACMI/charter provider currently deals exclusively with Thomas Cook Group with seven aircraft wet-leased to each of Thomas Cook Airlines UK and Condor. A further four aircraft, which all had been previously leased to Cubana, are currently undergoing maintenance.
