World’s lead­ing tur­bo­prop man­u­fac­turer ATR and the Ital­ian pro­ducer of air­craft in­te­ri­ors Geven to­day signed a con­tract to equip the ATR-600 se­ries air­craft with brand new pas­sen­ger seats. Named Neo Clas­sic and Neo Pres­tige, they have been specif­i­cally de­signed for ATR by the Ital­ian de­signer Gi­u­giaro and are pre­sented at this year’s Air­craft In­te­ri­ors Expo, cur­rently held in Ham­burg, Ger­many.

This con­tract af­firms ATR’s con­tin­u­ing tra­di­tion of en­sur­ing the high­est stan­dard of on-board com­fort by of­fer­ing the widest in­tra-arm­rest space on the tur­bo­prop mar­ket: 18 inches for both the Neo Clas­sic and Neo Pres­tige. In ad­di­tion, the Neo Pres­tige can be re­clined, has a larger tray table and a back­rest which is 2 inches higher than the one of the Neo Clas­sic.

Wider, more com­fort­able and easy to retro­fit on ATR -600s and older ATR ver­sions, the new seats also of­fer weight savings of up to 170 Kg. Ad­di­tion­ally, thanks to an op­ti­mised use of space and cut­ting-edge design, it is now pos­si­ble to of­fer two ad­di­tional seats in some cabin lay­outs, while keep­ing the same op­er­a­tional weights, thereby prof­it­ing from the ad­di­tional pay­load.
