The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has granted ATR certification to operate its new ATR 42-600 and ATR 72-600 in temperatures as low as -45C at take-off and landing.

This certification means that -600 series ATRs can now fly with other ATR versions already certified to operate in particularly cold environments such as the far north of Europe, Canada and Siberia.

As part of this certification process, the EASA certified new ATR '-600' equipment and systems - installed on the new avionics suite - which had already been designed by ATR suppliers taking into consideration their future use in extremely low-temperature environments.

Since their launch at the end of 2007, ATR has to date received more than 300 orders for the new '-600' series aircraft.
