Synergy Aerospace Orders 12 ATR 72-600s

Synergy Aerospace has ordered 12 ATR 72-600s, plus 6 options.

The aircraft, which will be configured with 72 seats, are to be operated by the group's new subsidiary in Argentina, Avian Lneas Areas, branded as Avianca Argentina under a license agreement.

The first delivery is expected before the end of the year, with entry into service planned for the first quarter of 2017.

Launching its operations with the latest-generation ATR 72-600s, Avian Lneas Areas will provide an essential service across the Argentinian market, introducing new regional routes and connections to and from main hubs, first in Buenos Aires and then in Crdoba.

Germn Efromovich, Chairman of Synergy Aerospace, said, We are excited about the imminent launch of Avian Lneas Areas as an Avianca branded airline. We are looking forward to expanding services and linking under-served communities in Argentina thanks not only to a highly efficient and modern ATR 72-600 fleet but also the technical and logistic support of ATR/Airbus stemming from a traditional strong partnership, as well as to broaden and deepen Aviancas network in South America.

ATR and Synergy Aerospace have been working together closely over the last five years. Synergy Aerospaces mainly owned subsidiary Avianca Holdings purchased 15 ATR 72-600s in 2012, currently operated by Avianca in Colombia and Central America.
