Authorities had reported that the addition of new 72-500 aircraft is aimed to handle the increasing air traffic movement for the airlines.

We were also informed that the congested airports and poor weather conditions have been resulting in a delay of flights for the airlines. A spokesperson reported; with the addition of new ATR-72 aircraft, the airline plans to reduce such delays.
