Air New Zealand Link
Air New Zealand Link is the name for Air New Zealand’s regional services. It was introduced in 1991 to standardise the branding of the three regional airlines who operated feeder flights on behalf of Air New Zealand. These were Mount Cook Airline, Air Nelson and Eagle Airways who ceased operations in 2016.
ATR (Avions de transport régional or Aerei da Trasporto Regional) is a joint venture between Airbus and the Italian company Leonardo S.p.A.
The ATR 72 is a twin-engine turboprop, a short-haul regional airliner able to carry a maximum of 78 passengers. A stretched variant of the ATR 42 it first flew on October 27, 1988, and entered service one year later with Finnair. The use of the “72” in its name comes from the airliner’s standard seating configuration. The aircraft also serves as a corporate transport, freighter and maritime patrol aircraft.
The ATR 72 and the smaller ATR 42 share a production line along with subsystems and components. Earlier models use the PW124B turboprop engine, later the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW100 and the latest -600 variant the PW127. Some unusual features of the type are that standard aircraft does not have an auxiliary power unit (APU). Instead, a brake applied to the starboard propeller allows the engine to function as an APU. Passengers board the ATR 72 via the rear door, unusual for an airliner and require a tail stand to guard against the aircraft’s nose lifting during passenger embarking/disembarking.
