Does anyone know anything about the status of FedEx ATRs? Have they entered service yet? What routes do they operate? Are there any pictures? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

I dunno.

I heard the rumor that Empire was replacing their Fokker 27's with them, but nothing yet.

I read a press release that said they (FedEx parent company) were getting Continental Express's old ATRs. The company website says they have a fleet of ten. I also read on a thread here that said Eagle was sending their old ATRs (42s) to FedEx. But I've not heard anything else, was curious if perhaps anyone knew where I could see one.

Hi,

I did a little search and came up with a lot of ATR 42 for Fedex.
All of them are stored waiting conversion to freighter.

c/n 45 ex N424MQ American Eagle
c/n 47 ex N47AE AE
c/n 170 ex N14825 Continental will be N900FX
c/n 172 ex N26826 Co will be N901FX
c/n 175 ex N15827 Co will be N902FX
c/n 179 ex N14828 Co will be N903FX
c/n 184 ex N14830 Co
c/n 217 ex N721TE Trans States
c/n 220 ex N722TE Trans States
c/n 250 ex N250AA AE
c/n 259 ex N99838 Co will be N904FX
c/n 269 ex N269AT AE
c/n 271 ex N93840 Co will be N905FX
c/n 275 ex N275BC AE
c/n 277 ex N277AT AE
c/n 280 ex N97841 Co will be N906FX
c/n 286 ex N86842 Co will be N907FX
c/n 293 ex N293AT AE


That's all I can find !

Where will FedEx use these ATR's? Carribean (like AA-Eagle/Executive uses them for pax there), smaller cities in US? Europe, like from their Paris hub to smaller cities? I doubt they will use them in northern climates, esp in the winter.

Fedex bought 8 from CO initially, and recently a further 19 from AmEagle. A mix of 42 & 72 to replace the F27's.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Hello, last I heard, the ATR conversion is on hold. I'm not sure how the contract feeder companies work, they might bring them in. There might be a website for Corporate Air, or Empire (I think). They're contract feeder operators. I'm not sure if FedEx actually owns any feeders now that I think about it.

They're being converted at SAT, if I'm not mistaken.
