Hi Air Takes Delivery of Second ATR 72-500 Aircraft

Hi Air has taken delivery of its second ATR 72-500.

Based in Ulsan, South Korea, Hi Air is currently waiting to receive its AOC. Once it gets the green light to commence operations Hi Air plans to launch domestic services before beginning short-haul international flights.

We chose the ATR aircraft because it has lower fuel burn, can take off and land from short runways and is well supported in the region in terms of maintenance and training, said Hi Air chairman and CEO, Hyung Khan Yun.

There are over 470 ATR aircraft operating across 68 operators in 25 countries in Asia Pacific. ATR forecasts that the Asia Pacific market will require some 740 more aircraft before 2038. Many of these aircraft will be required to operate 440 new routes.

Jean-Daniel Kosowski, ATR Sales Director, said, The ATR is the right aircraft for Korea because it can operate profitably on thinner routes, but also provides passengers with a comfortable and pleasant inflight experience. That is why ATR is the market leader in this segment worldwide, with 200 operators in 100 countries around the world successfully flying our aircraft.
