After 2008, they replaced their daily Airbus into DLH with ATR's; still here, nine years later. According to one Captain I wound up sitting next to on a flight, they do make excellent haulers off the "main line" routes and are favored by all the contractor outfits flying under the FedEx livery.

Best,
Andy

What are they upgrading from? I'm used to seeing Cessna 208s. Is this a replacement for that? Seems much larger than the C208. Or is there some other in-between aircraft this is replacing?

The article seemed to indicate the new ATRs would be for fleet modernization. I was reading where they currently have 26 ATR 42-300/320Fs and 21 ATR 72-200Fs.
