LIAT Orders Three ATR 42-600s
Antigua carrier Leeward Islands Air Transport Services (LIAT) signed an agreement for a $100 million order of three ATR 42-600 turboprop aircraft.
ATR said the agreement includes options for two ATR 72-600s and delivery of the first 42-600 is scheduled for June 2013.
“The ATR -600 series aircraft perfectly match the requirements of the airlines operating inter-island flights. Their outstanding performance and reliability on this type of routes clearly explains their success in recent years in the Caribbean region, where we have sold new ATR-600s to a number of airlines,” said Fillippo Bagnato, CEO of ATR.
