At the State Property Management Agency was held a meeting with the officials of the French-Italian aircraft manufacturer ATR Aircraft, one of the world's leading aircraft manufacturers.
The company manufactures 50 and 70-seat aircrafts for short-haul routes. During the meeting, the company representatives made a presentation about two types of aircrafts they manufacture.
This type of aircraft can be used for domestic and regional flights. ATR aircrafts benefit from fuel, emissions and cost efficiencies provided by turboprop engines.
ATR turboprops provide airlines with the best opportunities for operating short-haul routes at a low operating cost. Airlines servicing smaller markets desperately need more fuel efficient-aircraft to continue operating regular flights between regional airports and to main airports and hubs.
At the end of the meeting, the relevant ministries and departments also expressed confidence in the establishment of cooperation with the view of the newly established Humo Air Company.
