Three ATR 72-600 aircraft will be converted into freighters as a result of a cooperative agreement between ACIA Aero Leasing and IPR Conversions (Switzerland) Limited, holders of the Supplemental Type Certificate for the conversion of ATR 42 and ATR 72 aircraft. The corporations will start the first conversion in January 2023 after reaching agreements to carry them out in Europe, Canada, and the U.S.A.

Now is the perfect time to start converting ATR 72-600 aircraft. We are already in discussions with a number of potential operators about leasing these aircraft and expect to progress our discussions into firm lease commitments in the coming months.”
