Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) has delivered an ATR 72-600 to Bangladesh-based US-Bangla Airlines. The aircraft was handed over to the airline on 27 March during a celebration at the ATR facility in Toulouse, France.
Firoz Tarapore, CEO of DAE, stated: “We are delighted to welcome US-Bangla as our newest customer, as we are delighted to include Bangladesh in our growing footprint. Our delivery of US-Bangla’s ATR once again demonstrates DAE’s ability to effectively address the changing fleet requirements of our customers and our ability to execute such agreements swiftly.”
Mohammed Abdullah Al Mamun, managing director of US-Bangla Airlines, said: “We are very happy to accept the new ATR 72-600 from DAE – one of the top lessors of the world. We are adding this aircraft to our fleet to meet the growing demand in domestic sectors and to provide better services.”
This is the last ATR aircraft of an order of 20 ATR 72-600 airliners which DAE placed with the manufacturer in 2014.
