The total value of the deals reaches US$ 1.7 billion. This shows ATR is well on track to achieve its order targets for 2019.

It shows how the purpose of ATR to connect communities in a sustainable manner is delivering value to our customers. No matter the profile or operating environment of our customers, our aircraft prove their superiority for regional operations, thanks to unbeatable economics, environmental performance and versatility. With continuous product improvement such as our freighter 72-600F and the new 42-600 STOL version, we aim to keep ATR at the forefront of regional aviation.”
