Angolan charter carrier Airjet (MBC, Luanda 4 De Fevereiro) is expanding its fleet and service portfolio with the addition of two E145s, slated for arrival at Luanda 4 De Fevereiro later this month.

According to the ch-aviation fleets module, the two regional jets are 22.8-year-old D2-AJJ (msn 145475) and 22.9-year-old D2-AJB (msn 145456), owned by US-based Mission Air Support. They were formerly operated by Aeroméxico subsidiary Aeroméxico Connect, after which they were stored at Athens, Greece, from which they were ferried south via Marsa Alam, Egypt, on April 29, according to ADS-B data.

They are currently in heavy maintenance at Centro De Manutenção Aeronáutica Mpumalanga (CDMA) at Mbombela Airport in Mpumalanga, South Africa, the company confirmed to ch-aviation. A CDMA representative said the C-check was likely to take at least 20 days before the planes could be delivered to Airjet in Luanda.

The Angolan airline advertises on-demand domestic flights, air freight and mail delivery services. According to ch-aviation's fleets data, its current company-owned fleet consists of two Jetstream 41s and one E120, the latter operated on behalf of Sonair (SOR, Luanda 4 De Fevereiro) but currently in maintenance in Luanda.

Airjet was not immediately available for comment.
