Transport Canada has issued a type certificate for the ATR 72-500 that will enable Canadian airlines to operate the larger version of the turboprop.

Today, around 40 examples of the 48-seat ATR42-500 are flying with carriers in Canada, and the Franco-Italian manufacturer believes certification of its 78-seat stablemate will bring further opportunities for operators in both passenger or cargo configurations.

Alessandro Amendola, Senior Vice President Engineering at ATR, remarked: “Obtaining this latest certificate will allow us to expand the operational scope of our family of aircraft.  Once again, ATRs have proven that they are the perfect match for challenging markets such as Canada, where their ability to fly in extreme cold, icy weather conditions, take-off and land on unpaved and short runways is invaluable.”
