ATR achieves record sales in 2011

Turboprop manufacturer ATR doubled its order intake in 2011, selling 157 of its regional aircraft which comfortably eclipsed 2010's total of 80.

With its backlog now standing at 224, worth $5 billion, it is also well-ahead of Canadian rival Bombardier, where sales of the Q400 have been virtually non-existent and backlog stands at just 29 aircraft.

In 2011 the company took orders for 13 ATR 42s and 144 ATR 72s, giving the airframer an 80% market share. Order intake was 40% above its previous record year in 2007.

The company also holds options for a further 79 aircraft.

It delivered 54 units during the period, against 51 a year earlier, including its first ATR 72-600.

ATR recorded revenue of $1.3 billion in 2011.
