  • The ATR 72-600s will upgrade Air Botswana’s current fleet of three ATR 42-500s and one ATR 72-500s.
  • The brand-new aircraft is configured with a 70-seat, dual class cabin and equipped with the latest avionics.
  • Air Botswana is a long-standing ATR operator for over 20 years. With over 120 ATR aircraft flying in Africa, ATRs are the right aircraft for regional aviation in Africa.
