Aircraft manufacturer, ATR today announced an order for 10 ATR 72-600 with Avation PLC.

Deliveries are scheduled from 2025 to 2028, and the agreement also includes 24 purchase rights, valid until 2034.

Avation PLC has received delivery of 36 new ATR 72s, with two more scheduled for delivery starting in June 2024, as part of a previous order. Currently, Avation 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.

Jeff Chatfield, Executive Chairman of Avation PLC, Stated “Over the years, we have witnessed the exceptional performance of ATR aircraft, Avation believes that over the next 10 years, low CO2, SAF compatible, latest technology aircraft such as the ATR 72, and potentially its EVO successor, will be an essential component for efficient travel worldwide. We also believe that establishing a ten-year programme for the supply of new regional aircraft with sensible economics is a key component of our long-term business strategy. ATR 72s with their low operating costs and class-leading low carbon credentials are an essential addition to almost all major airlines’ regional networks.”

Nathalie Tarnaud Laude, Chief Executive Officer of ATR, commented: “The continued trust from a longstanding customer is the best recognition of our efforts to remain relevant over the years, through continuous innovation. This agreement not only reinforces our collaboration with Avation, it also reflects the strong market demand for ATR aircraft. We are proud to contribute to the success and growth of Avation’s portfolio, while fulfilling our vision of accelerating sustainable connections by ensuring communities worldwide get a quick, responsible and reliable access to essential services.”
