Air Lease has signed a deal to buy seven more ATR 72-600s, taking to 28 the number of the type the aircraft lessor has in its portfolio.

It continues a run of annual orders for the type Air Lease has made since placing its first contract for ATR 72s at the Farnborough air show in 2010.

"We are experiencing success placing our ATR 72-600s with operators expanding regional air connectivity and short segment routes all over the world," says Air Lease chief executive Steven Udvar-Hazy. "With its compelling operating costs and modern cabin interior designs, we believe demand for this aircraft will continue to increase."
