Messagepar thomas » Sam 20 Aoû 2011, 08:37

Le constructeur d’avions turbopropulseurs ATR a célébré hier la livraison des deux premiers ATR 72-600 en présence d’une délégation de la compagnie Royal Air Maroc qui s’apprête à devenir le premier opérateur de la nouvelle série -600.

Les appareils sont configurés en une classe unique de 70 sièges. Ils permettront à la compagnie nationale marocaine de renforcer son réseau domestique et régional. La compagnie avait passé commande en 2009 pour 4 ATR 72-600 et 2 ATR 42-600, pour un montant total de plus de 125 millions de dollars.

Ces ATR 72-600 sont les premiers à être équipés de la nouvelle cabine "Armonia", spécialement conçue pour ATR par l’italien Giugiaro Design. Elle inclut des nouveaux sièges plus légers et plus confortables offrant plus d’espace aux passagers ainsi que des coffres à bagages plus spacieux.

Il s’agit également des premiers ATR à disposer de la nouvelle suite avionique développée par Thales. L’avionique intègre un nouveau "glass cockpit" à 5 écrans et dispose également d’un nouveau système de gestion du vol (FMS), pilote automatique, gestion d’alertes et d’un ordinateur incluant entre autre des nouvelles fonctions de maintenance de l’avion.

Taiwan-based UNI Air, a subsidiary of EVA Air, has signed a contract with European regional turboprop manufacturer ATR to purchase 10 ATR 72-600s. Deliveries are scheduled to start in third quarter 2012. The contract was formalized with a ceremony in Taiwan today.

UNI Air will use its new ATR-600s to progressively replace the Dash-8-300 aircraft it now has in its fleet. The regional carrier’s new ATRs will be equipped with advanced technologies such as a glass cockpit avionics suite and redesigned cabin interiors. The aircraft will feature Armonia cabin especially created for ATR by Italy’s Giugiaro Design and equipped for passengers’ enhanced comforts with lighter-weight slim-line seats and larger overhead bins that will accommodate a maximum number of carry-on bags.

UNI Air Chairman Tony Su said, “We are pleased to update our regional fleet with the most modern aircraft on the market. The new ATR -600 series will enable us to give our passengers the highest standards of comfort and, at the same time, optimize our fuel and operating costs. We are looking forward to introducing our new ATR aircraft and operating them in Asia”.

Precision Air Services signs contract for 5 ATR -600s

Tanzanian carrier Precision Air Services and ATR today announced the signature of a contract for the purchase of four ATR 42-600s and one ATR 72-600 aircraft. The deal is valued at US$ 98 million. Delivery of the 50-seat ATR 42-600s will start in late 2012. The ATR 72-600 will be delivered in 2014.

With this acquisition, Precision Air Services will bring its fleet of ATRs up to 14 aircraft, thus becoming the largest operator of ATR aircraft in Africa. The current fleet of ATRs of Precision Air Services includes 5 ATR 72-500s, 2 ATR 42-500s and 2 ATR 42-300s.

With the introduction of these 5 brand new ATR ‘-600 series’ aircraft, the carrier will further develop its regional network, adding new routes and frequencies to its domestic market. This fleet expansion will allow the airline to offer its passengers the advantages and comfort of the new ATR -600 series ‘Armonia’ cabin.

Commenting on the deal, Michael Shirima, the Board of Directors Chairman of Precision Air Services declared: “We have been operating ATR aircraft for years, and we are totally convinced of their suitability for our regional routes. The ATRs are perfectly adapted to the hot climate in Africa, and feature optimal performance in smaller airfields and unpaved runways. Also, they provide us the lowest operating costs, thus strongly contributing to the development of regional aviation in our country”.

Alfonse Kioko, Group Managing Director and CEO of Precision Air, commented: "The very low fuel burn and the high dispatch reliability of the ATR aircraft, are helping us to maintain the level of ticket price necessary for the very strong competition in our market".

ATR and Precision Air Services set up in 2006 a joint-partnership for certified aeronautical maintenance training for some selected Tanzanian students. Each student spends three years being trained at the Aeronautical Technical School in Toulouse, France, and then joins Precision Air Services’ maintenance crew in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. So far, 12 students have already completed their training and joined the airline. Other additional 24 students are currently being trained or programmed in the coming years.

Filippo Bagnato, Chief Executive Officer of ATR, declared: “We are pleased to introduce the new ATR -600s in Eastern Africa, as well as to receive again the confidence of Precision Air Services. We have developed a strong partnership with the airline across time, which includes also the development of training programmes for maintenance and piloting activities. We are convinced that such fruitful relationship will be further strengthening in the coming years”.

ATR has today 110 aircraft in operation and on order with African and Middle East carriers and is established in 25 countries of the region.
