Bangkok Airways has ordered four additional ATR
72-600s, valued at over US$ 100 million at current list prices.
The airline currently operates a fleet of 15
ATR aircraft of which nine are ATR 72-600s and six are ATR
72-500s. The latter are being progressively replaced with the
introduction of the new ATR -600s.
Deliveries of the four additional
aircraft, configured with 70-seats, will take place between
October 2018 and March 2019.
Mr. Christophe Clarenc, Bangkok Airways’ Senior Vice President -
Technical, said, “Since the introduction of our very first ATR
back in 1994 we have built up a solid and fruitful partnership
that has substantially contributed to providing air services all
over the country, thus developing business and tourism. The ATRs
have proven, for years, to be the right aircraft to create new
routes and efficiently expanding regional networks. The
progressive harmonisation of our regional fleet with ATR 72-600s
brings our high-end customers the best standards of comfort, and
further consolidates ourselves as Asia’s Boutique Airline.”
Mr.Christian Scherer, ATR’s Chief Executive
Officer, said, “ATR aircraft created last year some 70 new routes
in Asian countries, generating over one million additional seats
and revenue opportunities for their operators. This ability to
generate business opportunities is clearly a key point of our
outstanding expansion in Asia.”
