ATR further consolidated its position in 2016 as the preferred choice of regional airlines. The modern ATR -600s ranked first among all regional aircraft sales of the year, with orders for 36 aircraft (34 ATR 72-600s and 2 ATR 42-600s, see table 1). ATR confirms its leading position in the market of 50-to-90-seat aircraft with a market share above 35% since 2010.
As it celebrated its 35th anniversary, the world’s leading turboprop manufacturer consolidated its historical levels of turnover and deliveries despite a challenging market environment. ATR reached in 2016 its second-highest turnover ever (US$ 1.8 billion), and its third-highest year in terms of deliveries (80 aircraft), confirming the appetite of the market for modern turboprops. The aircraft manufacturer also secured a healthy backlog, guaranteeing about 3 years of production.

In 2016, ATR achieved a major commercial milestone to introduce ATR -600s in the promising market of Argentina, thus underlining its key role to structure and develop regional links. It also received renewed confidence from nearly 30-year-long operators Aeromar (Mexico) and Binter (Spain), plus additional orders from Papua New-Guinea’s PNG Air and Brazil’s Azul Linhas Aéreas.
ATR’s Chief Executive Officer Christian Scherer declared: “ATR remained the preferred choice of regional airlines in 2016, despite the global economic slowdown affecting sales of the whole aviation industry. This highlights the suitability of our aircraft: we will continue to work closely with current and future operators to promote new routes and develop local economies.”
