ACIA Aero Leasing Leases Multiple Engines to Mexico’s TAR Aerolíneas

ACIA Aero Leasing, a provider of regional aircraft leasing and lease management services, and Mexico-based TAR Aerolíneas finalized an agreement for the lease of four Rolls-Royce AE 3007A engines to support the carrier’s Embraer ERJ145 fleet.

TAR Aerolíneas is a regional airline that operates a fleet of 11 Embraer ERJ145s and offers scheduled and charter flights connecting mid-size cities in Mexico’s domestic markets. The engines have already arrived at TAR Aerolíneas’ home base in Querétaro, Mexico, and are being deployed on the carrier’s regional network as it aims to ramp up operations as the air travel market recovers.

“We are thrilled to further broaden ACIA’s growing customer base in the Americas with the addition of our first airline customer in Mexico,” Sameer Adam, senior vice president of commercial for ACIA Aero Leasing, said, adding that the lessor’s commercial team collaborated with the airline to “swiftly craft a bespoke financing solution, enabling TAR Aerolíneas to respond effectively to increasing passenger traffic within the country through additional fleet capacity deployment and enhanced profitability.”

“ACIA has demonstrated remarkable flexibility as a new lessor to our airline,” Ricardo Bastón, CEO of TAR Aerolíneas, said. “They have a strong support team who are well-positioned to cater to the specific needs of our operations. ACIA’s North American presence was also central to providing an even faster response to our requirements. As we continue to see a positive recovery and stronger passenger demand, it’s important to have partners such as ACIA who are nimble and responsive to the changing market conditions.”

“Our entry into the Mexican market solidifies our targeted presence in North America in yet another exciting development for our expanding platform,” Mick Mooney, CEO of ACIA Aero Leasing, said. “This transaction is further evidence of ACIA’s diligent focus on engaging emerging opportunities and continuing expansion into new markets. We are leveraging our team’s expertise and deep industry background to build new relationships in key markets while strengthening our portfolio with in-demand aircraft.”
