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.

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.

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.

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.
