Aeromar, one of the major regional airlines in Mexico, took delivery of its first of 2 ATR 72-600 to be acquired on long-term lease from Air Lease Corporation (ALC). The delivery sees Aeromar become the first operator of the ATR -600 series aircraft in the region. In addition, the new airplanes will be the premier turboprops up to 70 seats in Mexico. Aeromar is ATR’s longstanding customer with 14 ATR airplanes in its fleet (ten ATR 42-500s and four 42-320s). The newly acquired 68-seat turboprops will replace the smaller ATR 42-320 allowing the airline to further boost service to destinations it already flies to: from the capital Mexico City to airports in smaller cities like Poza Rica, San Luis Potosi or Ciudad Victoria.
