So I noticed that yesterday (January 30, 2012) was the last day of operations for the ATRs based out of the hub in DFW. I could not find any flights on flight aware indicating where these ATRs are headed afterwards. Are they all parked at DFW for now? Will they be sold or parked in the desert? Please feel free to delete this topic if it is a repost. I tried searching for a topic discussing the ATRs at DFW, but I did not find anything.

Most if not all of the ATR's are owned by NAC, Nordic Aviation Capital based in BLL. Some have already found new owners as far as I am aware, but I don't know where.

Here's the news from 2008 about the sale of the 39 ATR's

And here is something about Cimber Sterling wanting to be the largest ATR operator in the world. QI is based in Denmark with their ATR maintenance done in BLL.

A solid number of them are going back to MIA/SJU. Eagle's oldest ATR did that route last week as a nonstop repositioning flight and it took it well over six hours to get to MIA from DFW!

Can't wait to fly my first AA ATR MIA-NAS on the 18th!


When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.
