ATR-72 transits through Keflavik

ATR-72 transits through Keflavik

Postby StuBie » Sat Apr 28, 2012 1:57 pm

Hi all,

This last week I have noted the following American Eagle ATR-72's transiting from Goose Bay to Keflavik:

N541AT - 24/4
N538AT - 24/4
N545AT - 27/4
N529AM - Due 28/4
N540AM - Due 28/4

Anybody have an idea where they are heading? Return to lessor or maintenance?

Edit: N499AT - Due into Goose Bay from Myrtle Beach at 16:30 BST.

Answered my own question I think:

From an article on CAPA:

It is not surprising the intra-Caribbean flights performed by American Eagle subsidiary Executive Airlines would be phased out since American intends to return all of its ATR 72 turboprops by the end of 2013. At the end of February the carrier had returned 21 of the aircraft, and said the remaining 18 would be phased out commencing this year and continuing through 2013. Executive operates nine ATRs from San Juan to approximately 15 destinations, based on current schedules from CAPA and Innovata.
