Rather than start a new Thread on Alliance, I have found that Alliance has 1 ATR72 on order. C/n 1421. Does anyone have any news on this?

It's an error.

It should be for Alliance Air in India.

Hi Max Thanks. I thought it was strange getting another type. Dennis

Alliance has reportedly purchased the Dutch Government's Fokker 70 PH-KBX

Robert, are you a regular reader of the Dutch News ?

PH-KBX is no stranger to Australia as it brought the Dutch Royal Family on a Royal Visit to Perth in October, last year.

I wonder if they noticed the Alliance guys "kicking the tyres" when parked in Perth.

Negative, was tipped off. Word (rumour) is that it could be delivered in June/July (assuming it isn't painted).

VH-FKJ is out of the paint shop in Alliance livery still.

Not sure if delivery dependent on arrival of replacement B737BBJ.

There is around 7 a/c stored in Bratislava if they need another a/c in a hurry

PH-KBX will be finishing up in May but the BBJ isn't due until 2018 (not too sure what month). Which will mean they will need to charter a KLM or Dutch Military aircraft in the short term. My understanding is that the Royal fly on scheduled flights from time to time.

I'll post FKJ in the photos thread.
