Sweden-based Braathens Aviation has signed a contract for the purchase of 5 ATR 72-600s with options on 10 additional aircraft.

Deliveries will commence at the end of 2015.

The new aircraft, which will seat 72 passengers, will be operated on the carrier's regional services in Sweden.

The ATR 72-600 will join an existing fleet of 5 ATR 72-500 airplanes operated by Braathens Regional from its base at Bromma Airport (Stockholm City Airport).

The new ATR planes will enable Braathens Aviation to press on with its expansion plans and replace aging Saab 2000 units.

We are delighted to be adding these newest generation ATR 72-600 aircraft to our fleet, said Per G. Braathen, Chairman of Braathens Aviation. These modern ATR aircraft are remarkably fuel-efficient and will help us run our regional operations more effectively while offering superior passenger comfort and a reduced environmental footprint. The new ATRs will support the strong growth in Scandinavia's regional air transport we anticipate over the coming years.
