Bangkok Airways has signed for four ATR 72-600s, in a deal valued at over $100 million at list prices.
Speaking during a signing ceremony at the Singapore air show, the carrier’s chief financial officer Anawat Leelawatwatana says the additional aircraft will be used to boost frequencies on its existing network. The first aircraft will be delivered towards the end of the year.
Bangkok Airways has operated ATRs since 1994, and Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that it has five ATR 72-500s and nine -600s in service.
“ATR has experienced dramatic growth in Asia over the last decade, and Bangkok Airways has strongly contributed to this success not only with the expansion of its fleet of ATRs but also because it sets a benchmark when it comes to developing networks with eco-efficient and versatile aircraft,” says ATR chief executive Christian Scherer.
