Central African carrier Afrijet has ordered a further ATR 72-600, due for delivery later this year.

The fresh order, announced by the manufacturer today at the Farnborough air show, takes to six the number of ATR 72-600s the Gabonese carrier will operate. During the Dubai air show it announced its first direct order for the type, taking three ATR 72-600s.



Afrijet chief executive Marc Gaffajoli says: ”Regional connectivity has a significant impact on local economies and community integration. To be effective in Africa an aircraft has to be cost-efficient, reliable and versatile.”
