SAS Scandinavian Airlines ATR 72-600

Hello guys
I am back with a new feature request, this time I am requesting the SAS ATR 72-600

 Why this aircraft?

I want this aircraft as it is one of the best suiting liveries on this plane, now as we may get the ATR 72-600 implemented into the game, this is a perfect livery to come with it

 Why do SAS have it in their fleet

First. SAS Operates this aircraft on short haul in Sweden and Denmark since as widerøe has all the short haul in Norway
Second. These planes came in to replace SAS old Dash 8, as those were sold since they didn’t want to have it in the fleet because of gear failure.

If ATR-72 wins I will definitely vote for this!
Just remember that SAS doesn’t have any ATR in the fleet any longer. The last one was sold in 2017. Nowadays they wet lease them from Flybe and Nordica.

They are operates by different companies, just like their CRJ-900, but not wet leased i think

I have flown with this several times before. I will definitely vote for this if the ATR wins :).

I didnt really say it was wet leased, but it is other airlines branded as another, SAS pays them to fly with their branding

It would be really nice to see this bird in SAS new livery, or why not both?
