Another 737 freighter for West Atlantic

Sweden-based West Atlantic acquired a 737-300F (23513, ex-TNT Airways).

The carrier tells Cargo Facts the freighter will be used as a maintenance spare/ad-hoc charter aircraft, operated by West Atlantic’s UK-based subsidiary Atlantic Airlines.

In addition to a large fleet of ATP turboprop freighters, West Atlantic now has one 737-400F, six 737-300Fs, and three CRJ200Fs, and plans to acquire a 737-400F next year. West Atlantic sold a 25% stake to US-based Air Transport Services Group at the beginning of this year, and as part of the deal will lease a 767-200F from ATSG.
