Title: Why wait for B727s? Tridents are cheaper!
Post by: carrisi on May 27, 2020, 01:59:04 PM

Air Gulf is selling Trident 1Cs (and soon the higher capacity Trident 1Es too). But did you know they are cheaper to run on sectors up to 1200nm than the B727?

For 1000nm sectors with 90 pax:
Trident is 2:50, quicker than 3:08 on B727, and has 5min quicker turnaround - fly more sectors
Trident burns 13.0T ($820) per sector, B727 burns 14.1T ($890) - saving almost $90k/month
Trident lease is $117k/month, B727 is currently $160k/month - saving 43k/month

If you want to compete, take the low cost option, and talk to Air Gulf about buying or leasing Tridents. Immediate delivery available.
