With its latest variant, the -500 series, ATR supplies state-of-the-art aircraft with jet-like comfort and outstanding performances. Both ATR models share full commonality and their unmatched fuel efficiency makes them the most environment-friendly regional airplanes in the sky.
ATR is an equal partnership between Alenia Aeronautica (Finmeccanica group) and EADS. Alenia Aeronautica’s manufacturing facilities in Pomigliano, near Naples ( Italy ), produce the aircraft fuselage and tail sections. Aircraft wings are assembled at EADS Sogerma Services in Bordeaux for Airbus France. Final assembly, flight-testing, certification and deliveries are under the responsibility of ATR.
In order to enhance its presence in the Pacific area and to be closer to its existing and future customers, ATR opened in 2006 a Sales Office in Sydney . Headed by Jean-Pierre Clercin, ATR sales director for the region, this office covers Australia , New Zealand and the South Pacific Nation Islands . ATR thus reinforced its strong presence in Asia Pacific, its second market in importance, and where Sales Offices in Beijing , Singapore and Bangkok already existed.
