My Flightglobal colleague Olivier Bonnassies is in Toulouse to witness the delivery to Brazilian operator Azul of an ATR 72-200, a pink turboprop that will promote the fight against breast cancer on this International Women’s Day.
Femama, the name you see on the headrest covers, is a Brazilian organisation for breast cancer.
Olivier says the ATR 72 is a second hand aircraft. Azul last year placed an order for 20 firm plus 20 options on the new -600 series. First delivery is planned in October of this year. Meanwhile, Azul is taking these -200s as interim aircraft for 1-1.5 year period.
