ATR unveils advanced all-business class design

Just a year after announcing its new collection of high-end cabin configurations, ATR has revealed an advanced design for its new All-Business Class configuration at the Aircraft Interiors Expo 2024.

  • Spacious Seats: The All-Business Class interior features individual business seats with direct window views and aisle access, ensuring exceptional personal space and privacy.

  • Ample legroom and recline
  • Generous width of 21.6 inches
  • Personal side console serving as both a table and stowage compartment

“The ETEREA business seat has been designed specifically for ATR by Geven. It will fit ATR’s standard seat rails for simplified aircraft customisation and retrofit. Passengers will experience a truly elevated journey from takeoff to touchdown, bringing regional aviation to new heights.”
