JAC adds 9th ATR 42-600

TOULOUSE, FRANCE — Franco-Italian regional aircraft manufacturer ATR and Japanese regional operator Japan Air Commuter (JAC) today announced the delivery of the airline's 9th ATR 42-600. JAC had placed an order for 11 turboprops of the same type.

The latest 42-600 will undertake the first leg of its ferry flight from Toulouse to Japan with a blend including Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

In countries committed to reducing carbon dioxide emissions and preserving biodiversity such as Japan, ATR aircraft have proven to be successful: they connect communities and businesses across the Japanese archipelago in the most responsible way.

This new ATR 42-600 sports a specific livery representing the leaves of Kaikouzu, the tree of Kagoshima Prefecture. These leaves are the symbol of the preservation of nature in this country. It represents JAC's commitment to connecting areas that coexist with nature, operating the lowest CO2 emissions and most fuel-efficient aircraft. The Japanese airline flies Yakushima, Amami Oshima, Tokunoshima, and Okinawa, which are all World Natural Heritage Sites, as well as many other areas rich and diverse in wildlife.
