ATR Blasts Past 2013 Performance in 100-order Q1

Woodrow Bellamy III 

[Aviation Today May 14, 2014] European regional airframe manufacturer ATR reported 100 firm orders for the first four months of 2014. 

Since the beginning of the year, sales of new ATR 600 series aircraft represent more than 80 percent of total orders for regional aircraft in the below 90-seat segment. The company's order intake through April is more than its entire year for 2013, where it reported 89 total firm orders. 

“This is already a very dynamic year in terms of sales and we expect our order intake to further grow very soon,” declares Filippo Bagnato, ATR’s Chief Executive Officer. “Based on these positive results, our current backlog largely exceeds 300 aircraft.”
