Antigua-based LIAT (Leeward Islands Air Transport) has signed a deal with Air Lease Corporation (ALC) to take one new ATR 72-600 on long term lease.
The aircraft comes from ALC’s orderbook with ATR and is scheduled to be delivered in the third quarter of 2016.
“We are pleased to place yet another new fuel efficient aircraft with LIAT, which has been a valued customer of ALC for several years. This ATR 72-600 will replace an older Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft to maintain scheduled fleet operations in the Caribbean,” remarked Kishore Korde, executive vice-president of Air Lease Corporation.
