Intro Group funds ATR for InterSky

This story is sourced from

Austria's Intro Group used internal cash to fund another new ATR 72-600 delivery for operations at InterSky.

The aircraft (MSN 1042) was delivered today and will be leased to the Austrian regional carrier, in which Intro Group has a 49.8% shareholding.

The ATR 72-600 follows the delivery of another aircraft (MSN 1038) in January this year.

The Bregenz-headquartered operator announced its ATR 72-600 order at the Berlin air show in September 2012.

Earlier this year InterSsky revealed plans for incorporating a third aircraft under an wet lease agreement with German operator Avanti Air. The 1994-vintage 68-seat aircraft will be based at Karlsruhe airport to operate a new route from the regional gateway to Hamburg. That service will be flown up to three times daily from 9 April.
