TRIP has ordered nine ATR 72-600s.

Brazil’s TRIP Linhas Aéreas will acquire a total of 18 ATR 72-600s, as well as reserve options for 22 more under a split order-lease deal.

While nine of the turboprops will be ordered directly from ATR, the remaining nine will be sourced from lessors ALC and GECAS, with the first 72-600 expected to enter service with TRIP in October.

The delivery of the 19 ATRs will make TRIP the world’s largest ATR operator, with 51 in service.
