Amsterdam - Lion Air Group subsidiary Wings Air has taken delivery of its fourth ATR 72-600 leased from regional aircraft lessor TrueNoord.
TrueNoord already delivered three brand-new ATR 72-600 to Wings Air in August, October, and November this year. These are the first brand new ATRs so far delivered by TrueNoord.
Wings Air is one of the Lion Group airlines serving solely on domestic routes across Indonesia. The carrier also serves as a feeder for the Group Airlines.
The carrier mostly flies to the rural areas of the country where only turboprop planes could land and take off. Wings Air fleet exclusively consists of 64 ATR (20 ATR 72-500 and 44 ATR 72-600).
Operational hubs of the airline are located in big cities such as Jakarta, Manado, Denpasar, Medan, and Batam.
With its 27-years experience in the industry, the Franco-Italian aircraft manufacturer proved itself as the producer of a perfect aircraft to open and serve regional routes in the most challenging parts of the world.
Its operational versatility, unbeatable economics, and comfortable cabin design are the features which made the ATR the most preferred regional aircraft around the world.
Countries that are made up of hundreds of small islands like Indonesia rely on air transport for commerce, healthcare, education, and travel. It is essential for such countries to have modern, reliable regional aircraft to provide these services.
As a regional aircraft specialist, TrueNoord consolidates its business in South East Asia year by year.
