In 2015, Airbus delivered 635 aircraft and received orders for 1.036. In 2015, Boeing delivered 762 aircraft and received orders for 768.

We focused our attention on the big producers, but we should not forget the small ones. ATR (Regional Air Transport) is a regional aircraft manufacturer. It was born in 1981, based on Aerospace companies in France (now Airbus Group) and Aeritalia (now Alenia Aermacchi) in Italy. ATR produces only two models, ATR 42 and ATR 72, which have reached the "-600" generation.

In 2015, for the first time in ATR history, the company has recorded 2 billion dollars in turnover (2014: 1,8 billion). At the same time, ATR also recorded a record for deliveries, managing to deliver 88 of aircraft (NOTHING: NOTHING).

Also in 2015, ATR received firm orders for 76 aircraft and 81 options (total 157 aircraft). According to the table below, there were 9 customers on 5 continents.

ATR welcomes 12 new operators for the "-600" model and announces the 200 threshold for airline operators with ATR aircraft in fleets (all models are included). Among them are also TAROM (7 ATR 42-500 / 2 ATR 72-500 aircraft).

ATR starts 2016 with arrears for 260 aircraft, totaling $ 6.6 billion, which guarantees nearly three years of production. From the beginning of the program, ATR received firm orders for 1538 aircraft and delivered 1278.
