IndiGo takes delivery of its first ATR 72-600

IndiGo's first ATR 72-600, delivered on November 17, 2017

IndiGo, India’s largest airline by market share, on November 17, 2017 took delivery of its first ATR 72-600. The airline and ATR announced earlier this year an agreement for the acquisition of 50 ATR 72-600s. This delivery represents a major step in the airline’s ambitious plan to further develop its fleet with the introduction of fuel-efficient and cost-effective ATR 72-600s, thus expanding its regional footprint and bringing air connectivity to smaller Indian airports and communities.

The introduction of the new ATR fleet goes in line with the Indian government’s Regional Connectivity Scheme, which aims to boost economic development, employment and tourism by connecting small and remote cities. Under this scheme 100 new airports are expected to be created in the next three years.

FlyMe takes delivery of its first new ATR 72-600 from GECAS

FlyMe (Villa Air) (Maamigili and Mahe) has taken delivery of its first ATR 72-600 (8Q-VAS, msn 1069). GE Capital Aviation Services Limited (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of GE, announced the delivery of a new ATR 72-600 aircraft leased to FlyMe, the Maldives carrier operated by Villa Air.

The aircraft comes from GECAS’ existing order book with ATR.

FlyMe currently operates two 50-passenger ATR 42-500s on routes within the Maldives.

Villa Air was incorporated in 1997 by the Chairman of Villa Group, Qasim Ibrahim, with a vision to develop an airport and an airline owned by Villa Group.  Following the incorporation the company embarked on two major projects to simultaneously develop an airport in the island of Maamigili in South Ari Atoll – the biggest tourism precinct in the Maldives and establish an airline that will be operated from the airport as its main base.

FlyMe commenced service between Villa Airport Mamigili (VAM) and Ibrahim Nasir International Airport on October 1, 2011.
