Regional Carrier Will Continue Operating Planes On Leaseback

Nordic Aviation Capital A/S and KIRK Kapital A/S announced Tuesday an agreement for a sale and leaseback transaction with AMR Leasing Corporation for 39 ATR 72 aircraft operated by Executive Airlines, which does business as American Airlines' regional subsidiary American Eagle.
