Alliance Air introduces first ATR 72-600
Air India’s fully-owned regional Subsidiary Airline Allied Services Limited under Brand Name “Alliance Air” today introduced its first newest ATR 72-600 aircraft into its fleet. The aircraft, leased from Singapore-based leasing firm Avation, is the first out of five that the airline will receive until July next year. This brand new ATR 76-600 is configured with 70-seats, and will bring additional capacity to passengers flying on the regional network of the airline across the country. Thanks to their new “Armonia cabin”, the ATR 72-600s will also propose to passengers the highest and most modern standards of comfort. Alliance Air currently has 4 ATR 42-320s among its fleet of regional aircraft. The outstanding performance of the ATR 72-600s make it the only 70-seat aircraft able to operate at each airport currently served by the airline. It also offers the lowest fuel-burn and seat mile cost on its segment. The aircraft is fitted with Pratt & Whitney 127M engines, and features a full-glass cockpit with the most modern navigation aid tools.
