Danish operator Jet Time has taken delivery of the first ATR 72-600 with which it will conduct regional services for Scandinavian Airlines.
SAS Group agreed the wet-lease with Jet Time – which is taking six ATRs from lessor Nordic Aviation Capital – earlier this year.
The aircraft will be painted in Scandinavian Airlines colours and are intended for services out of Stockholm and Copenhagen.
“With the smaller aircraft we can adapt our traffic to our customer's needs with many frequencies and destinations,” says SAS chief commercial officer Joakim Landholm.
Deliveries of the remaining five ATR 72-600s will be completed by early 2014, says the airframer.
