FLEET UPDATE: American Jet to acquire Two ATR-42's from TRIP of Brazil

American Jet, a charter carrier that is based at Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) but does most of its flying in the Argentine province of Neuquen, is due to get two ATR-42's from Brazilian airline TRIP, as this carrier sheds its ATR-42 fleet as part of its merger with Azul Linhas Aereas.  The ATR-42's will complement American Jet's existing fleet of one Learjet 35, two Dornier 228's, and three Metro IIIA's and are expected to be used for flights to a remote mine in Neuquen. 

The first aircraft to be delivered is expected to be ATR-42-300, PP-ATV, (msn 298) originally delivered to Canadian Regional Airlines as C-GICY in 1993.
