Tarom receives its first ATR 72-500

7th May 2009 - 18:25 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Romania’s flag carrier Tarom has taken delivery of its first ATR 72-500 from an order signed last year for two of the type. The airline currently operates a fleet of seven ATR 42-500s (as pictured), and will take delivery of its second new ATR 72-500 later this year.

“Our new ATR 72-500 will allow us to increase our total fleet capacity and to provide our passengers with more domestic frequencies as well as to open additional routes to Dubrovnik and Zagreb in order to enhance our network”, declared Ruxandra Brutaru, Tarom CEO.

“With the higher capacity ATR 72-500s we will keep our operating costs down and offer our customers competitive pricing,” she added. “We are delighted to be celebrating the introduction of the first 70-seat turboprop aircraft in Romania. It is our aim to continually propose to our passengers the most modern aircraft with the most up-to-date technologies, and we are convinced that our partnership with ATR will be further developed in the coming years.”
