Aurigny Takes Delivery of First of Three ATR 72-600 Aircraft

Aurigny, a Guernsey-based airline, has taken delivery of the first of three ATR 72-600 aircraft.

Aurigny plans to replace its existing fleet of three ATR 72-500 aircraft with the more efficient and comfortable -600 Series.

Not only does the ATR 72-600 burns less fuel and emits less CO2 than the -500, Aurigny will also benefit from -600 Series’ latest generation Standard 3 avionics suite and is the launch customer for the ClearVision Enhanced Vision System (EVS).

The EVS will provide pilots with improved vision and situational awareness during conditions of reduced visibility.

Aurigny Chief Executive Officer, Mark Darby, said, “We are sincerely proud of Aurigny’s role in providing essential connectivity between Guernsey and the United Kingdom – our customers depend on the services that we provide and we want to deliver them the very best.
