Air Saint-Pierre Signs MOU for New ATR 42-600 Aircraft

Air Saint-Pierre has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ATR for the purchase of a new ATR 42-600 aircraft.

 The new aircraft will replace the airline’s existing ATR 42-500 which has been in operation since 2009.

As with its predecessor, the -600 series is certified to take-off and land in cross wind conditions of 45 knots, a unique capability which is essential to operating in the challenging conditions of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon.

Air Saint-Pierre Chief Executive Officer Benoit Olano, said, “It makes perfect sense for us to continue our partnership with ATR by acquiring the latest generation -600 series aircraft. Every operator is looking for the most efficient aircraft on the market to maximise their operations, however, with a small fleet it is vital that we invest in an aircraft that really delivers on every single criteria that we require. The ATR does this, and will provide the people of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon with the continuing connectivity they need.”
