The ATR 72-210 also features enhancements to cabin comfort especially advanced internal noise treatment and superior cabin air conditioning.  A major advantage of the ATR 72-210 is its acoustic treatment, comprising stiffened frames, Dynamic Vibration Absorbers and skin damping material, all installed in the propeller area, ensuring a very high level of passenger comfort. The PW127 engine is also fitted with an Hamilton Standard/Ratier Figeac 247F propeller, characterized by advanced wide chord composite blades and a steel hub.

The improved cooling capacity and air distribution of the air-conditioning system enhancements on the ATR 72-210 version ensure a high-level passenger comfort.
