MIAMI — ATR and Mexican carrier Aeromar have signed today a contract for the purchase of up to 14 ATR -600 series aircraft, with eight firm orders (six ATR 72-600s and two 42-600s) plus options for six additional ATR 72-600s.

The 42-600s will be configured with 48 seats, while the larger 72-600s will have a capacity for 72 passengers. Both ATR variants will be equipped with the Armonia cabin, designed by the Italian firm Giugiaro, and which includes thinner and lighter seats, LED lighting and new overhead bins with 30% additional storage capacity compared with previous ATR versions.

“We are very pleased to further develop this longstanding and highly successful partnership with ATR. We both share a commitment to safety and the passion for technology with an environmental-friendly sense,” said Andrés Fabre, Chief Executive Officer of Aeromar.

To date, Aeromar has an all-ATR fleet, which includes nine 42-500s, four 42-300s and two ATR 72-600s. The new aircraft will come to replace part of this fleet, as well as to add extra capacity to boost its main routes, besides creating new connections to its domestic and destinations in the United States.

Last July, United States and Mexico entered into a new air transportation agreement, that is expected to boost travel, while clearing the way for any city in the USA and Mexico, to establish direct airline service.
