CANARY ISLANDS-BASED Binter has taken delivery of its first of 12 ATR 72-600s
CANARY ISLANDS-BASED Binter has taken delivery of its first of 12 ATR 72-600s. The Spanish regional carrier, an ATR operator since 1989, ordered the new aircraft over two different contracts signed in 2014 and earlier this year.
“We have been successfully operating ATRs for more than 25 years, and bringing the latest -600s is a natural step forward in our long-standing partnership,” Binter President Pedro Agustin del Castillo commented. “We will be pleased to offer to our passengers the latest standards of comfort available in the ATR -600 series aircraft, and we are convinced that these aircraft are the right tool to expand our services to countries around the Canary Islands archipelago.”
Binter’s new ATR 72-600s are configured with 70 seats and will be employed in inter-island routes and on international services to Madeira, Marrakech, Casablanca, Agadir and El-Aaiún.
