Regional aircraft manufacturer ATR has delivered the first ATR 72-600 with the brand new PW127XT engine to launch customer Air Corsica. Following a firm order for five new ATR 72-600s announced a year ago at the Dubai Airshow, this delivery marks an important step in Air Corsica’s fleet upgrade and sustainable development.

Air Corsica’s passengers will benefit from high-levels of cabin comfort and further innovation as the aircraft will be equipped with USB ports for charging electronic devices during the flight – a first in ATR cabins.

The airline will also be optimising the maintenance of its entire ATR fleet through a 12-year Global Maintenance Agreement. This pay-by-the-hour contract covers the repair, overhaul and pooling services of line replaceable units and includes the propellers, landing gears and leading edges availability and maintenance, plus a long-term price agreement for the provision of over 2,000 spare parts.
