Austrian carrier InterSky has taken delivery of its first ATR 72-600 aircraft. This is also the first ATR aircraft that will fly in the livery of an Austrian airline.

The new aircraft was welcomed at Friedrichshafen Airport, the company's main operating base, located in the southernmost part of Germany. Although headquartered in Bregenz, Austria, InterSky benefits from the proximity of the Friedrichshafen Airport to both Swiss and Austrian borders allowing the airline to conveniently serve many commuters and business travelers from the Alpine regions.

The second ATR 72-600 ordered by InterSky is scheduled for delivery in March this year, with the aircraft entering service on routes to key regional destinations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

These new generation airplanes are equipped with a new full-glass cockpit and feature a high comfort layout seating 70 passengers.

With the introduction of these two new ATR 72-600s, InterSky should almost double the seat capacity of its fleet, which currently consists of three 50-seat turboprop aircraft.

Filippo Bagnato, Chief Executive Officer of ATR, We are delighted to see the ATR 72-600 play an essential role in InterSky's success, and we are pleased to introduce the ATR aircraft in Austria. I am sure the airline and its customers will be happy to experience the revolutionary features on these new-generation airplanes. The arrival of the new ATR 72-600 will also provide InterSky the ability to further expand its regional network, adding new routes and frequencies.
