ATR: Short Haul Solutions
Toulouse, Southern France-based regional aircraft manufacturer ATR is the reference in the 50 to 74-seat turboprop market. Its ATR 42 and ATR 72 are the perfect solution on short-haul routes around the world. ATR has become the leader in its category by offering a high-performance, reliable, easy-to-maintain and comfortable aircraft to airlines operating on the regional air transport market, at a cost well below that of its competitors. The ATR aircraft have the lowest seat mile costs on short haul routes. 
The new generation ATR –500 series is the state-of-the-art aircraft in terms of technological innovation. Thus, the level of passenger comfort is equivalent to that offered by a jet of the same category, even better in terms of cabin space. 
An important feature of the ATR family is the high degree of commonality between the ATR 42 and ATR 72. They have the same fuselage cross section, use the same basic systems, share the same engines and propellers as well as the same cockpit. 
ATR has four customer support centers (Toulouse, Washington, Singapore and India), three training centers (Toulouse, Bangkok and India), sales offices in Beijing, Sydney and Moscow. ATR is certified ISO 9001-2000 and EN/AS/JISQ 9100, the worldwide quality standard in the field of aeronautics.
Almost 130 operators worldwide currently operate ATRs in about 70 countries. ATR benefits from the experience and know-how of two of the major leading European aerospace industries, Alenia Aeronautica (Finmeccanica group) and EADS, who each have a 50% share in the ATR programme.
In 2006, ATR posted a turnover of US $ 700 million, an increase of 30% compared to 2005, thus confirming the recovery of the turboprop market and the success of ATR aircraft.
In terms of deliveries, ATR plans to deliver 44 aircraft this year (versus 24 in 2005) and some 60 aircraft in 2008.
