Atlasglobal considers CSeries for fleet renewal

Turkish carrier Atlasglobal has raised the prospect of acquiring the Bombardier CSeries as part of a fleet-renewal programme.

The airline is seeking a replacement for older Airbus A320s.

Chairman Murat Ersoy says the carrier is aiming for younger aircraft and is considering different types.

"We are an Airbus operator but [we are] also looking to add [the] CSeries," he says, adding that it will reach a decision in the first quarter of 2018.

Ersoy says the airline will not expand aggressively in the run-up to 2020, preferring to concentrate on reducing the age of its fleet. The opportunities for rapid regional expansion are currently limited, he says.

Over the course of 2018 the carrier estimates maximum growth will be around 10%. Ersoy adds that Atlasglobal intends to reach revenues of $450 million this year.
