It was sold to a leasing company on August 16, 1989 and re-registered F-GGLK and then leased to the French airline Transport Aérien Transrégional on December 15, 1989. This airline was renamed TAT European Airlines in December 1995. The aircraft was sub-leased to the Dominican airline Aeromar International Airlines and later to the Danish airline Cimber Air Denmark between.

TAT European merged with Air Liberte on October 26, 1997 and the aircraft was sub-leased to the French airline Air Atlantique from November 1998 until it was returned to the leasing company in January 2001. The next lease was to the Irish airline Aer Arran Express on January 17, 2001 and the aircraft was re-registered EI-CVR; the company was renamed Aer Arann on May 28, 2003. As of this date, this ATR-42 is still in service with Aer Arann."
