Kenyan carrier Astral Aviation is set to expand the fleet with five B767-200Fs and four ATPs. Two of the ATPs will be freighters. The first B767 will be leased via Cargo Aircraft Management and is to arrive next month. Two will follow in 2021 and the last two in 2022. The nine new aircraft will be deployed on cargo and passengerflights on mostly the African continent.

Currently, Astral's fleet consists of one B727-200F, two DC-9-30Fs and one F27F. The company also wet-leases two B747-400Fs via Air Atlanta Icelandic which it operates out of Liege in Belgium.
