ATR 72-600

ATR, regional market leader

THE STRONGEST TRACK RECORD IN REGIONAL AVIATION
The regional aviation market has evolved rapidly over recent decades, from a geographical and technological point of view as well as from a business model perspective.
Air travel is not just about linking the major hub airports of the world but also about realising the potential of secondary and tertiary airports.
Turboprops in particular have a key role to play in creating and developing new routes, thus reinforcing the development of local communities.
Thanks to the unique commonality between the ATR 42-600 and 72-600, operators have the flexibility to choose the most profitable aircraft for their needs.


 

CONNECTING PEOPLE EFFICIENTLY AND MAKING NEW ROUTES VIABLE
There is much potential for countries to enhance their regional networks and link their smaller communities.
An increase in the number of flights has a positive impact on regional GDP, tourism and investment.
By offering a combination of greater accessibility to smaller airfields and lower operating costs than any other category of aircraft, turboprops have proved to be fundamental enablers for regional economic growth.
 
 

UNBEATABLE OPERATION COST
ATR aircraft are recognised worldwide as the best value for money.

ATR 72’s advantages(2)
With its lighter structure, optimised speed and an engine designed for short sectors, the ATR 72-600 is, by far, the most fuel efficient regional aircraft.
ATR’s fuel burn advantage drives lower costs and emissions and makes it the optimal aircraft for the regional market.
The ATR 72-600 is the benchmark aircraft in the regional market with unbeatable economics. Operating costs on the competing turboprop aircraft are 20% higher than ATR while regional jets are at least 40% higher.

The latest improvements feature new seats, which on top of weight savings offer an unrivalled 18-inch intra-armrest width for optimal passenger comfort. A wireless content streaming option is also available, offering connectivity to passengers in flight.
 
 
These recent innovations are building on the proven advantages of the ATR cabin, which offers the widest cross section in the turboprop market, reduced internal noise and an agreeable cabin pressure in flight.
