The first of its kind: a new regional freighter is here
The ATR 72-600F is the only new purpose-built regional freighter on the market. It incorporates all the latest technology featured in the ATR-600 series while boasting a design optimised for freighter operations. Entered into service in 2020, the ATR 72-600F is set to become the new benchmark in the regional air cargo industry.
What is a freighter aircraft?
A freighter, also referred to as a cargo aircraft, is an aircraft specifically designed and used for transporting goods and cargo rather than passengers. These aircraft are equipped with spacious cargo holds and loading systems to efficiently carry various types of cargo, such as packages, pallets, and oversized or heavy items. Freighters play a crucial role in the logistics and transportation industry by facilitating the movement of goods around the world.
As express e-commerce continues to grow, regional freighters are ideal to provide fast, economical and low-emission solutions to transport and logistic companies in small and medium-sized areas.
Born to be a freighter
Large Cargo Door
116” x 71” / 2.95 m x 1.80 m
Enhanced battery capacity for autonomy on ground
Enhanced LED lights in cargo compartment
State-of-art light and resistant cargo panels
Reinforced floor panels
488kg per m² / 100lbs per ft²
New rear upper hinged door optimised for cargo operations
New Air Management System enhancing reliability
Improved net positioning optimising volume
A versatile platform
The unique capability to carry both bulk and industry-standard unit load devices makes the ATR 72-600F a highly versatile aircraft. Bulk configuration helps in optimising available volume and cargo loading thanks to the nine vertical nets and attachment points on the floor and lateral tracks. Thanks to the large cargo door and wide cross section, the ATR 72-600F is able to accommodate industry standard unit load devices and interline with larger freighters.
Unique continuous cockpit innovation for optimal operations
The ATR-600 series’ full glass cockpit offers to pilots a simple working environment. It has raised the bar in human-machine interfaces offering a high level of comfort and demonstrable efficiency gains.
Navigation, communication and surveillance functions are integrated into a modular avionics architecture. This state-of-the-art philosophy is open and evolutionary to allow new software and hardware functionalities to be inserted in the future independently: continuous development is the ATR DNA.
