Turks and Caicos-based regional airline InterCaribbean Airways has expanded its fleet, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The fast-growing carrier has added a 48-seat ATR 42-500 aircraft, a new aircraft type for the company. 

The addition comes as InterCaribbean says it is “focused on growth while addressing the environmental impact that comes from aging aircraft.”

The new plane adds 60 percent capacity than the EMB120 it is replacing — along with emitting 40 percent less carbon dioxide than other aircraft. 

The new plane has a two-plus-two seat arrangement, with a club seat configuration at the front of the cabin. 

The plane began operations on domestic flights within the Turks and Caicos Islands and is now operating on regional flights. 

Notably, the new plane bears the official logo of the Caribbean Tourism Organization. 

The airline says it is expanding with several more ATRs debuting in the coming months.
