The aircraft is the first of 20 ATR’s, plus 16 options ordered by Malaysia Airlines in December 2012
Firefly currently operates 12 ATR 72-500's, and with the arrival of the new ATR 72-600's will almost triple its ATR 72 fleet, taking the total to over 30 aircraft.
The Indonesian carrier plans to increase capacity on its domestic network and frequencies on routes to destinations in Subang, Penang, Kota Bahru and Johor Bahru as well as increase their regional connectivity within the ASEAN network - specially Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore.
The ATR 72-600 will enter into service this month and the first commercial flight should take place following its arrival in Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Subang on 12 July, 2013, when the aircraft takes off for Johor Bahru, Malaysia.
