Air New Zealand will spend around $270 million on a flock of new cost-saving ATR 72-600s. ANZ has a firm order for seven of the planes, with an option for an additional five. "As the greenest airliner of its size in the market today, the ATR 72-600 will not only offer lower operating costs than similar-sized aircraft, but also have minimal impact on New Zealand's environment," said ATR CEO Filippo Bagnato.
