With the 600 series, ATR has reinforced its leadership position in the turboprop market. With its size and outstanding performance, the ATR 42-600 is the natural choice to connect remote communities. Thanks to its smaller capacity and low trip costs, it is perfectly suited to developing new routes. It also retains full commonality with the ATR 72-600, making the ATR -600 series the ideal regional tool giving operators the flexibility to adapt seat capacity to traffic demand. The ATR -600 features a state-of-the-art glass cockpit that incorporates the latest innovations in avionics technology. The glass cockpit further reduces flight crew workload and enhances situational awareness while providing better reliability, maintenance cost savings and weight reduction. The ATR -600 series has the widest cabin in the turboprop market. The cabin features new lightweight and slim seats to offer passengers more comfort and space. Wider, reshaped overhead bins allow passengers to carry a similar volume of luggage as they do in a single-aisle aircraft. The ATR 42 is designed to have excellent performance, especially on unpaved or narrow runways, as well as at challenging airports with short runways or close-in obstacles, thanks to its steep slope approach capability. Additionally, the ATR 42-600 includes the “reserve take-off torque” option which allows reduced takeoff distances, increased payload and optimised revenue from very short runways.
