Any plane must be 10 years old that can be transferred or those companies face sanctions or charges.

Eliminating a fleet type saves money on training, maintenance checks and spare parts inventory.

Why lease old planes that would require more maintenance than to buy new planes which that type us already in the fleet and will have a maintenance holiday?
