Bombardier and ATR each announced orders for a pair of turboprops last month, the Canadian manufacturer from Papua New Guinea’s Air Niugini for NextGen Q400s and the Franco-Italian airframe maker from Libyan Airlines for ATR 42-500s. The Q400 order included an option on a single airplane of the same type. Air Niugini’s fleet now consists of three 26-seat Q200s and three 50-seat Q300s.

Meanwhile, the contract for the pair of 48-seat ATR 42s marked the first sale for ATR involving a Libyan carrier. ATR plans to deliver the two airplanes this month and next.
