To those who visited the Spanish Canary Islands, the name Binter should ring a bell since its ATR aircraft can be constantly seen hopping around the various islands. The airline has been a faithful ATR aircraft user for many years and on Wednesday 16 September took delivery of its first of twelve ATR 72-600s ordered through two different contracts signed in 2014 and earlier this year.
With the introduction of these new ATR ‘-600s series’ aircraft the airline will progressively upgrade its current fleet, consisting of 16 ATR 72-500s. Binter, which is a long-standing ATR operator, has progressively developed its regional network over the Canary Islands with ATR aircraft since 1989.
The new ATR 72-600s, configured with 70 seats and equipped with the latest technologies in the fields of navigation aid tools and the highest standards of comfort for passengers, will enable Binter to upgrade its fleet to continue providing an optimal service in the inter-islands connections in the Canary Islands and in its international routes operated with this aircraft model (Madeira, Marrakech, Casablanaca, Agadir and El Aaioun).
