Afrijet orders another ATR 72-600

ATR has finalized the sale of a further ATR 72-600 to Central African airline Afrijet, to be delivered before the end of the year.

This order will bring the -600 fleet size to six ATR 72-600 by 2023, allowing the opening of new routes and increasing frequency.

Afrijet orders three new ATR 72-600s

ATR has finalized the sale of three ATR 72-600 aircraft to Central African airline Afrijet who will use the aircraft to replace part of its ATR 72-500 fleet.

From the second aircraft onwards, these ATR 72-600 will be equipped with the latest generation P&WC engine, the PW127XT-M, which delivers increased efficiency and burns less fuel.

Afrijet initially started with pre-owned ATR aircraft and then moved to a leased ATR 72-600 in 2020. This direct acquisition of brand new aircraft will increase the -600 fleet size to four ATR 72-600, allowing the opening of new routes and increasing frequency.
