    ATR has taken delivery of the first two ATR 72-600s in the presence of a Royal Air Maroc delegation.
    Royal Air Maroc will be the first operator of the new ATR “-600” series.

    Qantas' new premium carrier to use A320s

    Qantas announced its new Asia-based premium carrier will be using Airbus A320 aircraft.
    According to a company spokesperson, the "new premium carrier will have the feel of a private jet".
    The executive added: “As Qantas is still in negotiations with governments and investors on this project, we are unable to disclose the location for the carrier and the configuration of the aircraft.”
    The new project, announced as part of its international growth strategy (see story here), will sport “a new name, a new brand, a new aircraft and an exciting new look and feel,” said Alan Joyce, Qantas chief executive.

    Gulf Air in talks with Boeing, Airbus to juggle orders

    Bahrain carrier Gulf Air said Wednesday it was in talks with Boeing and Airbus to overhaul its plane orders as it seeks to reposition itself as a largely short-haul airline.
    The Gulf state’s loss-making airline said it would seek a new mix of wide and narrow body aircraft and would unveil its new order book at the Bahrain International Air Show in January.
    “We are in talks, mainly with Airbus and Boeing, to adjust the old order book to the new demand and the new strategy of the airline…which is to be more regionally-focused,” Karim Makhlouf, chief commercial officer at Gulf Air, told Arabian Business.

    An unnamed European airlines have last week issued an order for four new Bombardier Q400NG aircraft worth $ 126 million or approx. 650 million Danish kroner. Normally, airlines do not mind getting the requisite media attention when placing orders for new aircraft.

    It is a little different with an unidentified European airline last week has given a firm order for four new Bombardier Q400NG aircraft and purchase options on four additional copies of the same type.

    Aeroflot looking at A380's potential, says Airbus

    (MOSCOW) Aeroflot, Russia's flagship airline, is keen to explore the potential of the A380 superjumbo aircraft, Airbus vice-president Chris Buckley said.
    'We have started a communication with the airline, we are studying the possibility of Aeroflot's use of the A380,' Mr Buckley told journalists yesterday, at the MAKS airshow near Moscow. 'This does not mean that we will sell any A380s tomorrow.'
    Aeroflot, which historically has bought the bulk of its fleet from Airbus, has favoured arch rival Boeing more recently as its preferred supplier.
