Best Paris Air Show in ATR’s history
The 50th edition of the Paris Air Show was the best in the history of the Franco-Italian aircraft manufacturer ATR. Over the course of the week, the turboprop aircraft manufacturer announced orders for 173 planes, including 83 firm orders at the air show. The total value for these contracts exceeds $4.1bn (including $2bn dollars in firm orders). The success seen during the air show sets a new record for ATR’s order book, which now comprises over 270 firm aircraft orders for an estimated $6.5bn. The current order book also ensures ATR’s production until the end of 2016, and company recognition in the medium term. During the show, ATR announced orders from markets which have proved among the most promising in recent years: the aircraft leasing companies and Latin America.
