EASA Certification for 78 Seat ATR 72
Posted: 2015 Dec 17


A high-density seating configuration option for the ATR 72-600 that increases the regional commuter’s maximum seating capacity from 74 to 78 seats has received EASA certification. The new high density configuration option, is achieved by optimizing the pitch and adjusting forward cargo compartment. The airframe remains unchanged. The option will also be available as a retrofit.

“The demand comes from airlines, especially in the Southeast Asian market, requesting to further optimize the cabin space and to increase the number of available seats for regional flights,” says Thierry Casale, ATR Senior Vice President Programmes. ATR is pitching the 78-seat ATR 72-600 turboprop as the perfect combination between comfort and efficiency.

Cebu Pacific Airlines which placed the first order for sixteen new ATR 72-600s with the 78 seat configuration at this year’s Paris Airshow will have its first aircraft in the 78-seat layout entering commercial service in August 2016.
