FedEx takes second aircraft while we look back at ATR 72-600F first delivery

On 6 May 2021, FedEx Express took delivery of their second ATR 72-600F freighter, which will be operated by Empire Airlines throughout the western United States.

Following this delivery, we look back at ATR’s freighter programme with the first episode of a 3-part video series focused on team work.

Interviewees Guillaume Huertas (Head of Leasing, Asset Management & Freighter), Pierre-Etienne Langenfeld (Operations Industrialisation Projects Manager), Alessandro Luzi (Chief Engineer for Freighter), Claudio Sacchi (72-600F Project Manager) and Cyril Cizabuiroz (Head of Flight Test Department) give us more insight into how we managed to deliver our first cargo aircraft to FedEx in 2020 despite the challenges of COVID-19 and lockdowns.
