TAROM selects ATR-72/600 aircraft
To renew its regional fleet
TAROM will introduce nine new ATR-72/600 aircraft into its fleet. The -72/600 will be leased from NAC, the world regional aircraft lessor. Deliveries will commence in October 2019 through to 2020. The Romanian national carrier has been very successful in its domestic market operations by using ATRs to allow it to compete with low-cost carriers. New ATRs will offer airline an additional 330,000 seats every year at the same operating cost as its previous seat level, improving short haul connectivity in Romania and supporting the development of local and more isolated communities. Both have been working together for 20 years. The Romanian national airline operates a fleet of 25 airplanes, including seven 42/500s and two -72/500s which are now to be traded in for the announced nine -72/600s.
