The aircraft is the first to be delivered of a firm order for 8 firm ATR -600 aircraft (6 ATR 72-600s and 2 ATR 42-600s) with options for an additional 6 ATR 72-600s.

In order to further enhance our ability to meet our passengers’ expectations, with the new ATR -600s we will be providing them with the most modern standards of comfort and cabin interiors design.”
