Aerolineas Star Peru Acquires Two BAE 146-200s From BAE Systems
Hatfield, UK - Peruvian airline, Aerolineas Star Peru has acquired two BAe 146-200 regional jetliners from BAE Systems to add to its existing fleet of five of the aircraft that it currently operates on a busy domestic schedule. Both aircraft have been delivered.
Based in the capital Lima, Star Peru was founded in 1997 as a charter operator providing air services into remote jungle airstrips to support oil exploration companies.
The airline commenced scheduled airline services in late 2004. Since then it has added five BAe 146s (two Series 100s, one Series 200 and two Series 300s) to build up a domestic network that embraces services from Lima to eight cities and now accounts for some 14 percent of the Peruvian market.
Over 230 BAe 146/Avro RJ are in service with 60 operators in over 30 countries worldwide.
