Nauru Airlines is a critical component of the economic infrastructure of the Republic of Nauru and the surrounding region, and we are thrilled to support the carrier’s fleet growth,” commented Marc Cho, Co-Head and Managing Director of HALO. “Converted freighter aircraft will continue to be the primary source of aircraft replacement and expansion in the air cargo fleet and HALO will continue to support the financing needs of a global market,” Cho added.

The Chairman of Nauru Airlines, Dr. Kieren Keke, stated “Nauru Airlines welcomes the B737-800 converted freighter to its fleet of B737-300 converted freighters.
