Air Caraïbes introduces new generation ATR 72-600 plane

MARIGOT–Air Caraïbes has announced its fleet of aircraft in Guadeloupe has been joined by a new ATR 72-600 which replaces the older generation ATR 72-500. The order for the new ATR 72-600 planes were made in 2014, the first one being delivered in December 2016.

This new aircraft is particularly adapted to short-haul routes and demonstrates Air Caraïbes’ willingness to provide more modern and comfortable aircraft for its passengers, a press release stated. The ATR 72-600 is lighter and more fuel-efficient than the ATR 72-500 and has 74 seats, all in leather.
“Comfort and quality of service proposed to our clients is at the heart of our priorities,” stated Regional Director Olivier Besnard. “The ATR 72-600 has been integrated into our Air Caraïbes Simply brand and proves that we have not been resting on our laurels but continue to propose upgrades to satisfy the market.”
