Caribbean Airlines firms up MoU for 9 ATR 72-600s

Trinidad & Tobago flag carrier Caribbean Airlines has officially signed a contract for the purchase of nine ATR 72-600s, confirming the Memorandum of Understanding announced in 2010.

The airline will be a new ATR operator when it takes its first delivery in October 2011.

The aircraft are configured with 68 seats and equipped with the new ATR -600 series avionics suite and with the new Armonia Cabin, which features new lighter seats and larger overhead bins offering best-in-class in terms of comfort.

The fleet of new ATR 72-600s will replace Caribbean Airlines’ current fleet of five Bombardier Dash 8-300s on domestic routes, and add new frequencies linking Trinidad & Tobago and surrounding destinations. In addition, some of the new ATRs will be operated in the route network of Air Jamaica, recently acquired by Caribbean Airlines.
