Air Algérie has ordered 4 ATR 72-500s in an agreement valued at around US$ 82 million. Deliveries of the aircraft are scheduled to take place in 2010. These 4 ATR 72-500s, configured with 66 seats, will be equipped with Pratt & Whitney 127M engines as well as the latest technological innovations in navigational aids and communication instruments.

With these new aircraft, Air Algérie, whose fleet already includes 8 ATR 72-500s, will be able to offer its passengers an optimized service, in particular increasing its flight frequencies and opening new routes inside the country and to neighboring countries.

Also, within the framework of creating a training center by Air Algérie, ATR will assist in the installation, start-up and operation of a new flight simulator.

Abdelwahid Bouabdallah, President and Managing Director of Air Algérie, said, "Thanks to these new aircraft we consolidate our position amongst the most modern airlines on the continent, with one of the youngest fleets. The ATRs allow us to open up regions not able to receive our other types of aircraft. We are therefore doubly satisfied to be able to provide high-quality public service and coverage over all the national territory."
