ATR 42-600
Home / Aircraft Guide / ATR 42-600

The ATR 42 is a twin-turboprop, short-haul regional airliner built in France and Italy by ATR (Aerei da Trasporto Regionale or Avions de transport régional). The name ""42"" comes from the aircraft's standard seating, which varies from 40 to 52. Remarkably simple to operate and maintain, equipped with efficient, low-fuel-burn engines, the ATR 42 operating costs are 15%–20% lower than the competition. On 2 October 2007, ATR announced the launch of the −600 series aircraft. The ATR 42–600 featured various improvements to increase efficiency, dispatch reliability, lower fuel burn and operating costs. The PW127M is the standard engine (providing 5% additional thrust, thus improving performance on short runways, in hot weather and on high altitude; the ""boost function"" activates this additional power as needed).
