Avation has added the first new ATR 72-600 series aircraft to its fleet. The aircraft was accepted by Avation at ATR's manufacturing facility in Toulouse, France. It is the first ATR 72-600 variant to be added to Avation's fleet and the company's seventh new ATR 72. The aircraft is being added under the strategic Australian Regional Airline Network agreement between Avation, Skywest Airlines of Australia and Virgin Australia to provide a fleet of new aircraft which will operate in Australia. The aircraft are operated by Skywest Airlines. Chairman, Jeff Chatfield said: "This delivery is the first of a series of ATR 72-600s, that we are buying. "Our strategy is to lower the age of our owned fleet, thus extending the potential residual value of our fleet for our shareholders."
