11-Sep-2012 1:24 PM

Island Air signed (10-Sep-2012) a LoI for the lease of five ATR 42 aircraft with Aerway Leasing LLC. The announcement is the next step in the carrier's New Business Plan (NBP) launched earlier this year. The carrier said the five aircraft "will enable a dramatic upgrade in scale and service for the airline". Island CEO Lesley Kaneshiro said, "These aircraft represent an integral part of our plan to deliver on our service commitment to the ever increasing number of guests flying with us each day and is the next step in our NBP." The first two aircraft are set to arrive in Honolulu by end of year with three more joining the fleet in the summer of 2013. [more - original PR]
