It is understood the first aircraft was delivered last month, with the second expected before the second quarter of this year.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Captain Konstantinos Iliakis, Chief Executive Officer at SKY express, said the following on this growth:

“As we continue to grow our regional fleet, we are delighted to operate the youngest ATR fleet in the region and we have commitments for further fleet standardisation and improvement early in Q1 2024.”

“We are offering our passengers comfort and reliability, whilst reducing CO2 emissions and supporting the Greek tourism and economy.”

“An important example of the priority SKY express gives to the environment is our choice to connect the Greek islands and main Greek destinations in a modern and sustainable way with our fleet of ATR 72-600, emitting 45% less CO2 emissions than regional jets, a choice that offers more travel options to/from those regional local communities.”

Adding to this was Nathalie Tarnaud Laude, ATR’s Chief Executive Officer:

“SKY express is, once again, placing its confidence in ATR for the extension of its fleet, investing in the most fuel efficient, versatile and cost-effective regional aircraft to open up new opportunities for Greek communities and tourists alike.”

“SKY express’ growth also illustrates the dynamism of the regional market, continuous success of ATR in Europe, and a shared commitment to sustaining essential connectivity whilst tangibly reducing emissions.”

All eyes will be on how these new deliveries will positively impact the carrier.
