interCaribbean Airways Introduces its First ATR 72


Barbados Today – Providenciales, Turks and Caicos, August 28th, 2023 , interCaribbean Airways is thrilled to announce the highly anticipated deployment of its first ATR 72 turboprop aircraft.

The 68-seat ATR brings together modernity, comfort, and sustainability, and will bring additional capacity.

As the flagship of our fleet, the ATR 72, deployed in the Southern Caribbean on Friday, August 25th, is one of 10 ATR aircraft that will be incorporated over the next year, fulfilling interCaribbean Airways’ promise to commission newer, modern airplanes to improve passenger experiences.

This 68-seat ATR 72, christened “Captain Harold H” in honour of long-serving Captain Harold Williams, is known to be the best turboprop aircraft and provides outstanding short-field performance for an aircraft of this size.

Among the standout features of the ATR 72 is its impressive quietness.

At the heart of the airline’s commitment to sustainability, the ATR 72 also shines as an environmentally friendly addition to regional travel.

Emitting less than 50% carbon dioxide per passenger-kilometre compared to its competitors, this aircraft aligns seamlessly with interCaribbean Airways’ dedication to minimizing our carbon footprint and preserving the natural beauty of the Caribbean islands.

Founder and Chairman of interCaribbean Airways, Lyndon Gardiner, expressed his excitement about the game-changing ATR 72, stating, “We are immensely proud to introduce an aircraft that not only addresses capacity, but also redefines travel comfort.

By doing so, interCaribbean Airways aims to ensure that our passengers consistently arrive on time and with peace of mind.

We are excited to witness the positive impact this aircraft will have on our customers traveling in the region.”

With this latest addition to the fleet, interCaribbean Airways reaffirms its commitment to being the premier choice for regional travel, driven by a pursuit of innovation, reliability, and customer satisfaction.

  1. I was wondering when they would change their fleet to service the Island hopping. Cause those Jet engines are not economical for those short distance flying. But once LIAT 2020 is up and running I will feel sorry for you guys. Competition will be very stiff.

  2. Just seeing this is making my skin itch, making me sick.
    They should be ashamed of themselves. Advertising planes when they need to invest in properly training their slow, lackadasial, incompetent, rude employees and focus on being more responsible, reliable and better quality.
    Not losing people’s bags and leaving them stranded without compensation. And having the longest lines in the airport.
