Australia’s Skywest Airlines plans to introduce five more ATR 72-600s leased from Singapore’s Avation PLC, which placed a firm order for the airplanes with ATR last month. Scheduled for delivery from early 2013 through early 2014, the five new aircraft will fly as Virgin Australia under a wet-lease contract with Skywest. As of last month Skywest flew four ATR 72-500s for Virgin Australia, and planned to take its first of nine -600 series turboprops early this year.
