UTAir inked a deal for 20 ATR72-500 and wants to get a few 737s or A320s.

Why didn't UTAir just buy the newer more advanced ATR72-600 model?

Good news, and they also ordered recently 15 Eurocopters http://www.russianaviation.org/index...s-15-eurocopter-ec175-helicopters, they're really trying to expand, especially into Europe.

At first I thought this was a typo but the ATR website also indicates it as the -500:

How odd... the -600 is entering service this year, how long is ATR going to continue producing the -500? And if you're buying 20 new aircraft, why not go for the -600?

Good year so far for ATR, 9 for Caribbean Airlines, 15 for Lion Air, and now another 20 for UTair on top of that!

Is the newer -600 certified up to temps of -45 degrees Celsius? And is it available with ETOPS-120 and special fuselage protection? These characteristics come into play with the route-network of UTair.

And perhaps the price is right for UTair with the -500. Maybe with the -600 they would have had to wait longer?

Looks like UT Air is going to stop buying used 737-500's from CO. ooops! I meant UA!  

They picked up 3 last February. A/C 640, 644, and 650.



Is it broke...? Yeah I'll fix it.

Good point. I don't know the answer, but one guess would be that the -600 does not come certified "out-of-the-box" with these features, and they would be incorporated later. In that case, it would make sense.
