Flybe had a fleet of 68 aircraft

LIMERICK-based aircraft lessor Nordic Aviation Capital expects to place a "large number" of the 18 aircraft it had on lease to failed UK carrier Flybe "very soon", according to the group's chief commercial officer, Jim Murphy.

Flybe had a fleet of 68 aircraft, mostly De Hallivand Dash 8-400s, with fewer than 10 Embraer regional jets.

Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) is the world's largest regional aircraft lessor, with a total fleet of more than 500 aircraft.
