Trans Travel Airlines ATR42?

Sun Feb 03, 2002 8:51 pm

Could anyone shed some light into the new ATR42 operation of TTA ? They announced that they would operate an ATR42 on the RTM-LGW route taken over from Cityflyer with effect December 9, 2001. As it looks, they then decided to allocate the leased ATR to the RTM-HAM route and use their slightly larger Fokker 50 for the London route instead. Now they have announced plans to lease a 2nd ATR42 for the London route with effect March 2002. What is the source of the ATR42s and will the Fokker 50 be returned ? Here is a picture of the ATR42-320 already operated:

I can't read of the reg as the picture is pretty small.

Hi,

The registration of the aircraft is PH-RAK and the aircraft is used on the Hamburg service since last Monday.

According to the dutch aircraft register the constructionnumber is 32 making it ex I-ATRD of Alitalia Express.

PH-RAK
Rossair Europe B.V.
ATR ATR 42-300
c/n 032

another source reported it as C/N 034 ex I-ATRF
of Alitalia Express.

regards,
Marcel

Thanks Marcel - maybe the second one will be from the same source as well which might explain the conflicting reports ?

Hi,
Could be, think cn 034 was reported by the crew but was not checked on the cn plate. Have not heard of TTA getting a second ATR42 by the way.

The Fokker 50 PH-PRJ is gone and replaced by a Fokker 50 in Air Nostrum colours (PH-PRI).

regards,
Marcel

This is the press release - my Dutch is not really existing, but from what I am able to understand they are mentioning a 2nd ATR42:

"TTA heeft op de route Rotterdam - Hamburg een nieuw vliegtuig van het type ATR-42 ingezet. Deze moderne en dus geluidsarme ATR-42 biedt plaats aan 44 passagiers en is onlangs van een nieuw, zeer luxe interieur voorzien. Met ingang van 1 maart zal er eveneens een nieuw ATR-42 vliegtuig door TTA op de route Rotterdam - Londen Gatwick worden ingezet. De vluchten naar Hamburg en Londen Gatwick worden drie keer per dag uitgevoerd. De vertrek- en aankomsttijden zijn geheel op de wensen van de zakenreiziger afgestemd. Behalve lijndienstvluchten naar Hamburg en Londen Gatwick voert TTA vanaf Rotterdam Airport ook dagelijks twee vluchten uit naar Birmingham. Vanaf Rotterdam Airport kan er tevens met TTA via Hamburg naar Göteborg in Zweden gevlogen worden."

Translation from that Dutch article:

TTA now uses a new aircraft of the type ATR-42 on the route Rotterdam-Hamburg. This modern and therefore soundless ATR-42 offers 44 passenger seats and received a brandnew luxurious interior recently.
Starting 1 March a new ATR-42 aircraft will be operated on the route Rotterdam-London Gatwick. The flights to Hamburg and London Gatwick will be operated 3 times a day. The rest of the article is commercial sh*t which I don't want to translate for you as it is of no use...

Sorry for my bad English...
