Wentworth is perhaps best known for its experience and expertise in the Executive Airliner markets. We have sold all but one of the recent 757 sales, including the sale of Paul Allen's 757 to The Trump Organization, and in 2018 we concluded the sale of the 767 operated for Google.
The advantages of converted airliners are overlooked by many corporate buyers. Today’s commercial airline market presents outstanding purchase opportunities which hark back to those of the early 1980’s. Wentworth always welcomes the opportunity to discuss the advantages and intricacies of executive airliner conversions.
