ATR has delivered the first of three ATR 72-600 aircraft to Aurigny. By replacing its fleet of three ATR 72-500 aircraft with the -600 Series, Aurigny will optimize its operations. The ATR 72-600 burns up to 40% less fuel and emits 40% less CO2 compared to a regional jet.
The Guernsey-based airline will also further benefit from -600 Series’ latest-generation Standard 3 avionics suite and is the launch customer for the ClearVision™ Enhanced Vision System (EVS). The EVS will provide pilots with outstanding vision and situational awareness during conditions of reduced visibility.
In the cabin, Aurigny’s passengers will benefit from the -600 Series’ modern Armonia cabin which will introduce the latest standards of comfort, offering more space for luggage in overhead bins and providing passengers 18” wide seats.
