Austrian all-cargo carrier Amerer Air plans to become the first customer for the re-launched British Aerospace Regional Aircraft BAe 146QT (Quiet Trader) freighter program. Its aircraft, a Series 200 recently converted by Aerostar in Bacau, Romania, is undergoing painting and final maintenance checks in the UK before delivery. The 146QT will be ferried to Linz, Austria, where Amerer Air has created a major logistics center. The carrier plans to operate the freighter for major cargo “integrators” and ad hoc charter work.

Amerer Air uses a Fokker F27-500 freighter to serve major freight forwarders, express-cargo companies, private shippers, integrators and governments. Since 1999, it has established a long-distance international trucking operation to supplement its air-freight business. It offers European Aviation Safety Agency-approved maintenance, and a flight- and ground-crew training center.
