ATR sent a pair of ATR 42-500s to Sri Lanka last month to deliver five tons of medicine, milk and clothing to tsunami victims. The two airplanes flew to the capital city of Colombo to unload their humanitarian freight before heading to Bangalore, India, from where Air Deccan now flies the regional turboprops in scheduled airline service. The gesture supplemented donations from ATR employees and the company’s works committee to the “Fondation de France” fund-raising organization. Last December ATR helped transport toys and clothing for the Pondicherry-based Franco-Indian association “Volontariat.”
