Final checks on ATR before arrival

Air Vanuatu engineers and flight crew are conducting final checks on the recently purchased ATR72-500 in Kuala Lumpur before departing for Port Vila. The second ATR is the same model aircraft as Air Vanuatu’s existing ATR72-500, purchased in 2009.  “As with any significant investment, we want to ensure we are completely satisfied with the aircraft before leaving Kuala Lumpur,” Chief Executive Officer Joseph Laloyer said. “Our engineers and pilots are in the final stages of thoroughly checking the aircraft and its manuals in preparation for departure. We are excited about the arrival, however cannot rush these final engineering checks.” Media inquiries: Tiffany Carroll Tel +678 7747153 or tcarroll@airvanuatu.vu
