Avian Líneas Aéreas, the new subsidiary of the South American company Synergy Aerospace, has taken delivery of the first new-generation ATR 72-600 to fly in Argentina. The airline intends to start operations of its new ATR -600 series fleet during the first quarter of 2017, commercially branded as Avianca Argentina, following the carrier’s current certification process. The delivery follows the announcement, last year, of a contract between ATR and Synergy Aerospace for 12 firm ATR 72-600s and options for 6 additional ones.

The new and eco-efficient ATR 72-600s will provide an essential service across the Argentinian market, introducing new regional routes and connections to and from main hubs, first in Buenos Aires and then in Tucumán and in Cordoba.

Commenting on the delivery of the first ATR 72-600 for Avian Líneas Aéreas, Germán Efromovich, Chairman of Synergy Aerospace, declared: “Our Group has been successfully operating ATR aircraft with different regional airlines throughout Latin America. Operating ATR -600s will enable us to provide an essential air service throughout the Americas, from the Rio Grande to Tierra del Fuego.”
 
Christian Scherer, Chief Executive Officer of ATR, added: “This new fleet of ATR -600s will represent an efficient, comfortable and rapid alternative on many routes only covered today by road transportation. Argentina provides a strong potential for the development of short-haul air connectivity. Avian Líneas Aéreas has courageous, ambitious plan which we are happy to escort with the best aircraft for this purpose.”
 
ATR is well established in Latin America and the Caribbean region, with some 160 aircraft operating in the liveries of 30 airlines.
