Citilink to add 5 ATR72-600s
According to several Indonesian newsoutlets, Citilink is planning to add five additional ATR72-600s this year. The five aircraft will be used to support the expansion of the airline's domestic network with up to 43 new destinations. It's unclear how the aircraft will be sourced.
Citilink was established in 2001 by Garuda Indonesia as its low-cost subsidiary. It has its main operating bases at Halim, Jakarta and Surabaya and serves mainly domestic destinations, but also flies to Australia, Cambodia, China, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thailand and Timor Leste. It has a fleet of seven ATR72-600s, 41 A320s, ten A320neos, two A330-900s and two B737-500s.
