On 15 November 2009, Wings Air announced that it had signed a deal with ATR worth 600 million USD. The deal involved an order for 15 ATR 72-500 aircraft with a further 15 options for ATR's new ATR 72-600 aircraft. The new aircraft replaced the airline's aging McDonnell Douglas MD-80 and Dash 8 aircraft. The first three ATR 72-500s were delivered in January 2010 and were inaugurated at a ceremony in the tourist and diving destination of Manado.
On 25 February 2011 Lion Air signed an order for 15 new ATR 72s for the Wings Air fleet. The 2009 contract had included options for 15 additional ATR 72-600 aircraft. The deal announced in February 2011 represented the conversion of all 15 options.

Accidents and incidents
- On 5 April 2016, a day after Batik Air Flight 7703, a Wings Air ATR 72-600 smashed an airport taxiway sign. This causing a hole in the body of the airplane. No one was killed or injured in the incident. The passengers later removed into another aircraft. The National Transportation Safety Committee investigated the incident.
"Fly is Cheap" Slogan
Wings Air previously used the slogan "Fly is Cheap", subsequently changed to "Flying is Cheap". The former version of the slogan received considerable attention for the English grammatical mistake, which might be interpreted as a suggestion that the airline provides a poor quality service, rather than the intended meaning that its fares are inexpensive.
