Japan Air Commuter (JAC) and ATR today announced the delivery of the company’s 9th ATR 42-600 to its fleet of 11 ATR aircraft. The latest ATR 42-600 will undertake the first leg of its ferry flight from Toulouse to Japan with a blend including Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
This new ATR 42-600 sports a specific livery representing the leaves of Kaikouzu, the tree of Kagoshima Prefecture. These leaves are the symbol of the preservation of nature in this country. It represents JAC’s commitment to connect areas that coexist with nature, operating the lowest CO2 emissions and most fuel efficient aircraft. The Japanese airline flies Yakushima, Amami Oshima, Tokunoshima, Okinawa, which are all World Natural Heritage Sites, as well as many other areas rich and diverse in wildlife.
