Canary Islands regional airline Binter Canarias has placed a firm order for six ATR 72-600s for its fleet renewal valued at just under $150 million at list prices.
Binter Canarias has operated ATRs on intra-island services since 1989 and today its fleet includes 18 ATR 72-200s and -500s, making it one of Europe’s largest ATR operators.
Announcing the deal at the Singapore Airshow, ATR said Binter’s new -600s will be progressively introduced from 2015.
“The ATR aircraft family feature unrivalled performances in very short-haul networks and at small runways as those of the Canary Islands. ATRs experience also outstanding success at many other archipelagos all over the world, such on the Caribbean region or in French Polynesia,” said ATR.
According to AerData, Binter also operates four Bombardier CRJ200ERs on lease from Spanish regional Air Nostrum.
