ATR deliveries to IndiGo affected by pilot shortages
Updated : June 13, 2019 08:58 PM IST
In India, ATR is struggling to deliver planes as quickly as it had hoped, partly due to problems finding enough pilots for leading customer IndiGo.
The turboprop maker, owned jointly by Airbus and Italy's Leonardo, has delivered only a handful of aircraft in 2019.
The delivery snag is the latest indication of the cost of a global pilot shortage as air travel grows faster than the economy.
