29 Aug 2014 by Clement Huang

Now, that’s something you don’t see everyday. Thailand-based low-cost carrier Nok Air has taken delivery of its first Q400 NextGen turboprop at Bombardier’s facility in Toronto.

Featuring the airline’s unique bird livery, the aircraft, named “NOK ANNA” is the first commercial Q400 NextGen aircraft to offer 86 seats.

“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,” said Patee Sarasin, chief executive officer, Nok Air.

“We always aim to lead through continuous innovation to offer our passengers an unsurpassed experience, and our new Q400 NextGen aircraft will enable us to serve more passengers comfortably and conveniently, as well as expand to new destinations profitably.”

Nok Air’s fleet currently consists of two ATR 72-500 and 16 Boeing 737-800 aircraft. It also has an order for seven Boeing 737 MAX 8s, and five more Q400 NextGen jets.
