Austria’s InterSky orders 2 ATR 72-600s
Austrian carrier InterSky, INTRO Group, -major shareholder of the airline (49%)-, and the European turboprop aircraft manufacturer ATR signed a contract for the purchase of 2 ATR 72-600s, valued at some $47m. The first of the 70-seat ATR 72-600s will be introduced in December this year, with the second one following in March 2013. These aircraft will become the first ATRs to be operated by an Austrian carrier. With the introduction of these two new ATR 72-600s, InterSky will almost double the seat capacity of its fleet, which currently consists of three 50-seat turboprop aircraft. The ATR aircraft will be stationed at the company’s base in Friedrichshafen, Germany and will enable InterSky to propose more frequencies on main routes, such as to Berlin and Dusseldorf.
