ATR has forecast a need for around 100 turboprop aircraft in Japan up to 2025.

ATR delivered its 1500th aircraft, an ATR 72-600 to Japan Air Commuter (JAC) last October. The first ATR delivered to Japan was an ATR 42-600 to Amakusa Airlines in 2015.

Stefano Bortoli, CEO of ATR, said, “The ATR is now well established in the Japanese regional aviation market and we see an important growth potential for the next decade. Connecting smaller, isolated communities, increased local tourism and flights to world heritage sites as well as the celebration of two major worldwide sports events will boost regional travel in Japan and ATR is the ideal tool for offering country-wide connectivity.”

ATR aircraft are ideal for opening new routes with an average of about 100 new connections per year and a record of 155 new routes globally in 2017.
