SkyAlps (BQ, Bolzano/Bozen) has acquired four ex-LGW - Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter DHC-8-Q400s in a transaction arranged by Airstream International Group, implementing its plan to grow its turboprop fleet.

OE-IMP (msn 4234), OE-IMQ (msn 4239), OE-IMR (msn 4245), and OE-IMT (msn 4250) are of 2008-2009 vintage and have all been parked at Bratislava since March 2020, the ch-aviation fleets module shows. The aircraft were part of a batch of 20 units initially leased by airberlin group and subleased to LGW, and then were taken over together with LGW by Lufthansa Group after the collapse of the former owner. LGW operated them briefly on behalf of Eurowings. All of the aircraft were returned to their lessors by 2021.

The four De Havilland Aircraft of Canada turboprops were owned by Nordic Aviation Capital through the NAC Aviation 9 Limited special purpose vehicle, which is currently in liquidation. Airstream International Group was appointed to remarket them by liquidator Declan Taite.

Sky Alps launched in 2022 with four DHC-8-Q400s leased from Regional One (two) and Falko Regional Aircraft (two, managed by Chorus Aviation Capital), initially placing them on the AOC of Luxwing (BN, Malta International) pending certification. It recently acquired four ex-flybe. (2002) units, although they have yet to enter into service.

Six of the twenty Q400s that were once operated by LGW are currently placed with Conair (FGD, Abbotsford), four with National Jet Express (JTE, Adelaide International), and one with Link PNG (Port Moresby).
