Mandarin Airlines' First ATR Delivery
ATR delivered the first of nine ATR 72-600s to Mandarin Airlines, the regional subsidiary of Taiwan’s flag carrier China Airlines, with a ceremony in Toulouse. Mandarin Airlines will be a new ATR operator and will utilise these aircraft to service domestic routes throughout the island. Besides the contract for the aircraft, ATR is also willing to provide engineering and technical support to China Airlines and its subsidiaries to set-up in-house capabilities for ATR heavy maintenance, up to C-checks.
By integrating the most modern turboprop into their fleet Mandarin Airlines will benefit from the unbeatable economics offered by our -600 series aircraft. With trip and seat costs that lower than any other regional aircraft Mandarin will be able to generate operational savings which will allow them to offer their passengers affordable prices together with one of the most spacious and comfortable cabins in regional aviation.
This delivery begins a journey of cooperation with a new operator necessitating the provision of our best possible support to our customer. With the best range of products powered by the commitment and dedication of our talented workforce, ATR will continue to welcome many new customers and operators; remaining the leader in regional aviation.
