Airlines PNG’s ATR 72-500

Airlines PNG ATR (Custom).jpgI received some pics from Airlines PNG showing the ATR 72-500 doing some trial flights in Papua New Guinea.

Airlines PNG operates Bombardier Dash 8-100s and de Havilland Twin Otters but plans to step up to larger turboprops.

The aircraft in the pictures is actually owned by Malaysian carrier Berjaya Air, but Airlines PNG plans to wet-lease it for a total of five years and use it for mining charter work.

This means the aircraft will be landing on some pretty basic airstrips and operating in very mountainous areas.
