[Avionics Today 10-06-2014] Indonesian airline TransNusa Aviation Mandiri has taken delivery of its first new generation ATR 42-600, with options for three more of the ATR twin-turboprop aircraft. The aircraft, the first of its kind in Indonesia, will be part of the airline’s development efforts towards the Fly-In, Fly-Out (FIFO) charter segment.

The first ATR 42-600 is expected to enter into service this November and the chartered ATR 42 will open up its first FIFO service departing from Jakarta’s Halim Airport to Matak Airport in Natuna Island, conducting six return flights per week. Ã¢â‚¬Â¨Ã¢â‚¬Â¨TransNusa has also chosen to cover its aircraft with the Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA) signed recently with ATR, which will ensure the management of maintenance activities and the supply of spare parts for the ATR 42-600 for five years.
