TAT Group’s leasing subsidiary, AIR Ltd., has taken delivery of a new ATR 72-500 aircraft, the group's 40th ATR aircraft delivered thus far. The aircraft will be leased to Bangkok Airways.

With the delivery of this 70-seat ATR, Bangkok Airways brings its ATR 72-500 fleet to 9 aircraft, with an additional aircraft to be delivered next year. The carrier started operating ATR aircraft in 1994 and has become one of the largest operators of ATRs in South East Asia.

 Captain Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, President of Bangkok Airways, said, “In today’s complicated aviation environment, the ATR aircraft, with their lowest operating costs and lowest fuel burn, represent more than ever the right choice for our regional operations. With the entry into service of this additional ‘-500 series’, we will be able to introduce more frequencies to our network, while maintaining the high standards of comfort of our ATR fleet.”

The new aircraft is also the 800th ATR delivered since the beginning of the programme (401 ATR 42s and 399 ATR 72s). Up to date, ATR has sold 968 aircraft (419 ATR 42s and 549 ATR 72s) and posts a current backlog of 168 aircraft.
