Full-service carrier Jet Airways has decided to phase out ATR aircraft from its fleet as it leans increasingly on larger planes. Market leader IndiGo has decided to buy 50 aircraft for foraying into regional operations. The ATR-72 is used on short-haul routes. According to Jet’s website, the carrier has 15 ATR 72-500s and three ATR 72-600s. Sources say with a larger focus on international routes, the airline felt ATRs didn’t fit the scheme of things.
