A new aircraft type - ATR 42-500 - is to be operated on the route Arkhangelsk–Naryan-Mar starting from February 1st, 2012. This is the first joint project of "Nordavia" and "NordStar", both part of the "MMC "Norilsk Nickel" group of companies, on modernization of air fleet in the European Russian North.
ATR 42-500 is a twin-engine turboprop passenger aircraft operated on short-haul routes. Aircrafts of this type can be used for operation of non-stop flights up to 3.5 hours long. The aircraft was designed by the French-Italian aviation company ATR in the beginning of the 80-s. ATR 42 operated its first flight in 1984, while its commercial operation was started in 1985. From that time the aircraft had several modifications, the most recent of which is ATR 42–500. This modification has more powerful engines, increased take-off weight, speed and flight range.
ATR 42-500 is to be operated by "NordStar" airlines (Y7 carrier code), while "Nordavia" is to be the commercial partner in terms of passenger sales.
"Nordavia – Regional Airlines" used to operate one daily flight on the route Arkhangelsk – Naryan-Mar on Boeing-737 aircraft type, however the schedule was not convenient for Naryan-Mar passengers.
The new aircraft type ATR 42-500 with capacity of 48 passenger seats allows to operate two daily flights, on Wednesdays and Sundays – three daily flights, while starting from May 20th, 2012, flights will be operated three times per days all week round.
The new schedule provides convenient connections to "Nordavia" regular flights to Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, as well as from Saint-Petersburg and Moscow to Naryan-Mar. Passengers have the opportunity to purchase air tickets at special through fares.
"NordStar" and "Nordavia" consider fleet modernization on regional routes as strategic direction of their development. Operation of 4 ATR 42-500 started in May 2011, now the aircrafts operate flights to Northern parts of the Krasnoyarsk region and neighboring districts.
