Polish regional operator EuroLOT is to renew its ATR turboprop fleet with the rival Bombardier Q400 NextGen.

EuroLOT said it would take eight aircraft, with options on another six.

It is expecting to receive the first as early as May this year.

"The chosen aircraft has excellent operational flexibility, which is essential in an increasingly-competitive market," said the Warsaw-based carrier.

EuroLOT's aircraft will be configured with 78 seats.
