ATR has delivered the first ATR 72-600 with the new PW127XT engines
The world's number one regional aircraft manufacturer, ATR, has delivered the first ATR 72-600 with the new PW127XT engine to Air Corsica. Following a firm order for five new ATR 72-600s announced a year ago at the Dubai Airshow, this delivery marks an important step in the modernization and sustainable development of Air Corsica's fleet.
ATR has invested in technology and is introducing the new PW127XT engine, which offers a 20% reduction in maintenance costs and a 3% improvement in fuel consumption compared to the PW127M.
Air Corsica passengers will benefit from high cabin comfort and additional innovations as the aircraft will be equipped with USB ports for in-flight charging of electronic devices, a first for ATR cabins.
