Caribbean Airlines has taken delivery of its first ATR 72-600 turboprop in Toulouse, part of an order for nine of the type.

The carrier will replace its existing fleet of five Bombardier Q300s with the ATR aircraft.

The airline will use the new aircraft to boost passenger capacity and develop new routes and frequencies within Trinidad and Tobago.

Caribbean Airlines said that it will deploy some of its new ATR 72-600s in the domestic route network of Air Jamaica, which was recently acquired by Trinidad and Tobago's flag carrier.
