Air Tahitiís first ATR-600

Air Tahiti has taken delivery of its first ATR 42-600 in a bid to modernise its fleet. The aircraft is part of the firm order for seven latest-generation ATR aircraft ordered in August 2010 and December 2012 (three ATR 42-600s and four ATR 72-600s).

The other aircraft will be shipped over the next three years. In addition to the delivery being a notable first for Air Tahiti, this aircraft is the very first ATR-42-600 to fly in the French overseas territories.

The new 48-seat aircraft, the most fuel-efficient in the airline’s fleet, will gradually be introduced into service on the regional routes in French Polynesia and will operate an international connection between Papeete and Rarotonga international airport in the Cook Islands.

 “With the arrival of these new ATR aircraft, our passengers will be able to benefit from the exceptional comfort of an ultra-modern cabin, which is an essential criterion for our quality of service and customer satisfaction,” declared Maté Galénon, Managing Director of Air Tahiti. “We have been preparing for the arrival of our new ATR-600s for more than a year. Polynesia is looking forward to flying in the brand new ATRs.”  www.airtahitinui.com
