ATR 42

The ATR 42-600 is the only 50-seater aircraft in production with a secured future and it is the right size and natural choice for both fragmented and niche markets. Equipped with 2 engines PW127 M, it has unrivalled performance on very short runways, as well as on “hot and high” airports.

For large groups and family holidays across Australia the ATR42, there’s no better plane for this than the ATR 42-500. It’s no tidepool-jumper: it seats nearly 48 people comfortably, with surprisingly wide seats and roomy overhead bins. If you haven’t flown in a turboprop plane lately, prepare to be impressed with a smoother, quieter ride.

Metro 23

The Fairchild Metro 23 is categorised as a Turboprop Airliner and is an upgraded version of the Metro III, featuring improved avionics and more powerful engines. These enable the Metro 23 to offer a range of over 2750km, very impressive for an aircraft of this category and considerably further than the Fokker 50, than which it also has agreater cruise speed.

The interior of the Metro 23 is very practical, catering for up to 19 passengers in an economy seating formation. It is also on the market at a much better price than jets with the same passenger capacity and, therefore, constitutes an extremely viableand less expensive alternative for short-haul flights for large groups.
