Visitors to the static display will be able to experience the company’s latest technologies for on-board passenger inclusion, such as braille passenger cards and a Hearing Aid Loop. At its booth, situated at E01, the company will also demonstrate its ClearVision™ Enhanced Vision System (EVS), a world-first in commercial aviation and its Route Creation Model. The first deliveries of ClearVision™, which offers pilots greater situational awareness in conditions of reduced visibility and the ability to take-off and land with reduced minima, were made to Guernsey and Bhutanese airlines Aurigny and Drukair, respectively.
The global success of the ATR is thanks to both its unbeatable efficiency, as it burns 40% less fuel and emits 40% less CO2 than a regional jet. Its versatility allows it to perform a variety of operations, even on thin routes, such as island hopping, point-to-point, taking-off and landing from short runways and cargo. These criteria are particularly relevant for the Asia Pacific market, which is why the eco-responsible aircraft remains so successful at connecting communities throughout the region. By providing air links, ATR aircraft create opportunities for economic development, business, as well providing access to education and the delivery of essential healthcare to people in remote areas.
With e-commerce growing by 19% annually worldwide regional freighter aircraft will become increasingly important to support economic growth. Converted ATR aircraft currently account for one third of the global regional freighter fleet and with the first delivery for the only new, straight from factory, regional freighter later this year ATR offer ideal cargo solutions for all operators.
