ATR announces sale of ten -72/600 airplanes to Avation

Deliveries are scheduled between 2025 and 2028

ATR, the world regional aircraft manufacturer, today announced the signature of a firm order for 10 -72/600 with Avation PLC. Deliveries are scheduled between 2025 and 2028, showcasing Avation’s long-term vision and confidence in the relevance of industry’s products to serve the regional aviation market. The agreement is further complemented by 24 purchase rights, extending until 2034.

This order marks another milestone in the enduring relationship with Avation which began in 2011. Since then, the Singapore-based lessor took delivery of 36 new ATR-72s, with two more scheduled for delivery in the coming months, as part of a previous order. Avation currently owns a fleet of 20 ATRs. 

Emitting 45% less CO2 per trip than similar-size regional jets, ATR aircraft are already 50% SAF compatible, with the aim to be 100% SAF ready in 2025, as part of the manufacturer’s commitment to low-emission aviation. These additional aircraft will also contribute to enhance regional connectivity to remote and underserved areas worldwide, linking communities and stimulating economic growth by attracting businesses, tourism and investment.
