Avia Solutions Group, one of the world’s largest ACMI providers, has acquired a UK-based airline operator Synergy Aviation, Ltd., later to be rebranded to Ascend Airways. The newly purchased business, which has an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and Type B Operating License from the UK CAA, will enable the Group to strengthen its position in the UK aviation market.
Jonas Janukenas, CEO of Avia Solutions Group, said, “We have been present in the UK aviation market for over 10 years, managing MRO and Charter Brokerage businesses.
Having a UK AOC will create new opportunities for the Group in the UK and will enable us to expand the geographic reach of our ACMI and Charter services.”
ASG forecasts that Ascend Airways will operate up to 20 aircraft during its first three years of operations, starting later in 2023.
