Leeward Islands Air Transport Services (LIAT) (Antigua) and ATR announced the signature of an agreement for the purchase of a total of three 48-seats ATR 42-600s. The deal also includes options for two 68-seat ATR 72-600, and is valued at over $100 million. LIAT will take delivery of their very first ATR 42-600 in June 2013.

With the arrival of these aircraft from ATR, plus additional ATR -600s under discussion from leasing companies, LIAT will progressively replace its current fleet of former Bombardier DHC-8 turboprop aircraft. The airline currently operates a fleet of 14 aircraft over its Caribbean network, which includes main hubs at Antigua, Barbados and Trinidad, and destinations, among others, in the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, St. Marten, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St. Lucia and St. Vincent.

In addition, Air Lease Corporation announced LIAT and ALC signed long term lease agreements for two new ATR 72-600 aircraft, delivering in June and August 2013.

Antigua-based LIAT is owned by 11 different governments in the Eastern Caribbean, and is the major scheduled airline operator in that region.
