ATR 42 – Aerei da Trasporto Régionale
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: 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.
