The regional turboprop manufacturer ATR, and Italian design house Giugiaro Design, have unveiled their partnership for the development of the new ATR ‘-600 series’ cabin, named Armonia.

The name Armonia is linked to beauty, harmony, balance and calm, themes apparent in the new design. Giugiaro Design has been involved in many high profile and highly acclaimed car, corporate aircraft, train, ship and motorcycle design projects. The new Armonia cabin marks Giugiaro’s entry into the commercial aviation interior design market.

Armonia’s attractively and cleanly styled seats, ceiling, side panels and overhead bins make the cabin more spacious, airy and comfortable. Armonia also uses lightweight materials, reducing its total weight by the equivalent of two passengers. Features and benefits of ATR’s ‘-600 series’ Armonia cabin include:

● New wider, lightweight seats – ergonomically designed to ensure greater knee clearance, an enhanced sense of space and increased under-seat capacity.

● 10 % more cabin storage space and 30% more carry-on capacity – up to 70% of passengers will be able to store their roller bags overhead.

● LED lighting – creating a warmer and more welcoming environment, while improving energy efficiency and weighing less than other lighting systems.

● Optional two-class configuration – with first class offering wider seats (in 2+1 seats basic configuration), more space, windows for each row, and large armrest tables.

● Optional jetway-capable forward door – with a new designed spacious entrance area.

Filippo Bagnato, Chief Executive Officer of ATR, said, “Our partnership with Giugiaro Design brings substantial prestige to the ATR ‘-600 series’ aircraft. To the many advantages of ATRs in terms of operating costs, performance and environmental friendliness, we are now adding the latest in attractive, comfortable cabin interior design. Thanks to this new partnership, ATR ‘-600 series’ passengers will now experience a totally new level of comfort.”

 Visitors to the Farnborough International Airshow (19-25 July 2010) will be able to see a full-scale mock-up of the Armonia cabin.

ATR’s ‘-600 series’ regional turboprop aircraft are due to enter service from 2011.
