Bluebird Nordic, Icelandic ACMI leasing and cargo airline, is planning to obtain an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) in Slovakia, expanding its operations in Europe.
The company’s decision comes as a strategic move to enter new and prominent markets.
“Slovakia is ideally positioned in the middle of Europe, which offers great opportunities for a wider geographical coverage,” said Audrone Keinyte, CEO of Bluebird Nordic.
“The new AOC in the country will aid in expanding our airline routes and destinations, and strengthen the airline’s name in the region.”
Currently, Bluebird Nordic operates a fleet of one B737-300, six B737-400 and five B737-800 full freighter aircraft.
Bluebird Nordic plans to grow the fleet to 25 aircraft in the next couple of years and strengthen the position in cargo market, especially in Boeing Next Generation (NG) segment.
