Nok Air takes delivery of its first Q400 NG

Thai regional carrier Nok Air has announced the delivery of its first Q400 NextGen turboprop at Bombardier’s facility in Toronto, Canada, where the aircraft is manufactured.

The aircraft is the first Q400 NextGen airliner to be delivered in the new 86-seat configuration, and is part of Nok Air’s purchase agreement for up to eight Q400 NextGen airliners that was announced on November 19th, 2013.

Following the exercise of options and purchase rights, Nok Air has firm orders for six Q400 NextGen aircraft and retains two purchase rights from the original contract.

Nok Air CEO Patee Sarasin said: “We are very excited to not only be the first to operate the Q400 NextGen turboprop in Thailand, but also the launch operator for the extra capacity seating configuration. Our new Q400 NextGen aircraft will enable us to serve more passengers comfortably and conveniently, as well as expand to new destinations profitably.”
