ATR will be at the 50th Paris Air Show, which will take place from June 17 to 23, 2013.
Chalet: ATR will have a chalet at B-345.
Static display: An ATR 72-600, the best-selling regional aircraft worldwide since its launch in 2007, will be on display at the static area of the exhibition sporting the colors of the Colombian airline Avianca. The aircraft is equipped with a new digital avionics suite and the new 'Armonia' cabin, which was specially designed for the ATR by Italian designer Giugiaro. A "concept car” also designed by Giugiaro and synonymous with a famous film will also be on display next to the ATR 72-600 to symbolize the return of propeller aircraft as technology of the future for regional aviation.
