Bangkok Airways orders up to eight ATR 72-600s
ATR and the Thai airline Bangkok Airways announced a contract for the sale of six firm ATR 72-600 aircraft and two options, valued at almost $200m. Bangkok Airways has been operating ATR aircraft for two decades and currently operates a fleet of eight ATR 72-500s. The first new ATR 72-600s will be delivered later this year, allowing Bangkok Airways to start renewing its fleet and to offer all the new comfort and cabin features of the ATR-600s to its customers.
