PORT VILAThe only ATR 72-600 of Air Vanuatu has returned to its base in Port Vila after nine-months of extensive maintenance in Australia.



The aircraft had been ferried to the city of Cairns before the COVID-19 pandemic, where Australian MRO company Jet Aviation is based.


During this period, Air Vanuatu’s ATR 72-600 pilots went to Brisbane for simulator training. The pilots returned to Vanuatu with the aircraft, but are now undergoing a 14-day quarantine.


The aircraft will be deployed on routes to the bigger islands of Espiritu Santo and Tanna during Christmas.


In the absence of its ATR 72, the airline conducted its domestic flights with three de Havilland Canada DHC-6-300 Twin Otter in the fleet.
