The year just passed has proved a record 12 months for the Italian/French aircraft manufacturer ATR, whose assembly plant is on the Airbus site at Toulouse.
ATR in 2014 beat records in sales, deliveries, turnover and backlog. Firm commitments increased to 160 aircraft, along with 120 options, exceeding the previous 2011 record (157 firm sales and 79 options). As a result of the extraordinary commercial year experienced by ATR, 2014 ended with 280 aircraft in its backlog, an end-of-year level never reached until now.
The 160 firm sales and 120 options represent nearly half the total sales of regional aircraft of below 90-seat capacity for the year. For the turboprop aircraft segment, these sales account for 80% of all the orders for 2014.
The 83 deliveries in 2014 represent not only a new record for ATR but also an increase of more than 60% over the last five years (51 deliveries in 2010). The consolidation of its production ramp-up which will continue in 2015 and should enable it to exceed the 100 deliveries mark in 2016. www.atraircraft.com
