Air Botswana Takes Delivery of its First ATR 72-500


National-flag carrier Air Botswana today took delivery of its first new ATR 72-500, in accordance with a deal for two ATR 72-500s inked last year and valued at some US $ 37 million. With its new ATR 72-500s, configured with 68-seats and equipped with the “Elegance Cabin” and In-Flight Entertainment, Air Botswana will be able to respond to the growth of the air transport demand in the country by increasing the passenger capacity of its current fleet of 3 ATR 42-500s. In addition, the airline will fly its new ATR turboprops in routes previously operated by regional jets that become unprofitable.
