Delivered in December 2023 and January 2024, these additions bring SKY Express' total ATR fleet to 14, including six ATR 72-600s and six ATR 500s. This expansion signifies the airline's commitment to continuous fleet modernization and its dedication to connecting Greek communities in an environmentally responsible manner.
