BAE Systems Regional Aircraft announce drecently that Amerer Air, an Austrian all-cargo carrier, is set to become the first customer for the relaunched BAe 146 QT (Quiet Trader) freighter programme.

The aircraft to be purchased by Amerer Air will be the first BAe 146QT conversion, a Series 200 (msn E2099). It was converted recently at Aerostarin Bacau, Romania and made its first flight as a freighter to Southend, UK on 25 June. There it has been painted and is now undergoing final maintenance checks before delivery.

After delivery, the aircraft will be ferried to Amerer Air’s base at Linz in Austria before entering service.
