LONDON SOUTHEND AIRPORT: October 09, 2018. Jota Aviation has begun operating a fleet of four BAE 146-300 ex-TNT Express freighters acquired from Dublin-based ASL Aviation Holdings.

The airline, which operates three BAE/Avro 146 variants for the passenger ACMI market, says the new freighter fleet will be used to develop business in the courier, mail distribution, automotive, spares manufacturing and livestock sectors.

Jota 146 300“This ushers in a very exciting chapter in the development of Jota. These dedicated 146 freighters have never been available on the open market before, having been exclusively owned and operated by TNT on their overnight network,” explained Jota CEO Andy Green. “The palletisation is fully compatible with overnight integrators and postal systems, unlike the QC variants, previously offered on the market and not such a popular choice.”

The aircraft, with a maximum payload of 13.5 tonnes and a useable volume of over 100 cubic metres, can be operated either bulk loaded, with pallets, or nine LD3 containers loading through an outsize cargo door and on a fully-palletised roller floor.

Based at Southend Airport, Jota Aviation was founded in 2009 by British entrepreneur Simon Dolan.

Two years ago ASL acquired the airline operations of TNT Express and renamed ASL Airlines Belgium and ASL Airlines Spain – from where the four Jota aircraft were obtained.
