Danish lessor Nordic Aviation Capital has ordered up to 40 more ATR turboprops, of which 15 are firm.

ATR says the agreement increases the order placed by the lessor during the Paris air show this year.

It brings to 50 the number of firm -600 series aircraft ordered by Nordic Aviation Capital, which has options on another 80.

"In recent years, [Nordic] has built up the largest portfolio of ATRs in the world," says the airframer, adding that the company has about 90 of the type under management.

ATR adds that the deal "underlines the increasing interest of leasing firms" for the -600.

Their strong performance and reliability, coupled with their proven operational success in very different environments, make them the right choice for us when thinking about expanding our regional aircraft activities," says the lessor's chairman, Martin Møller.
