TARAWA, Dec 27 Asia Pulse - The Kiribati Cabinet has given Air Kiribati - the national airline - the green light to buy two Twin Otter planes from Canada.

The move is to replace its aging Chinese-made Y-12 plane and Spanish CASA aircraft, reports Pacific Magazine.

The Twin Otters would be used for domestic services.

Seems that the new TwinOtter is finding some friends.

The "new" Twin Otter will be built by Viking Air, not Bombardier:
