Aircraft manufacturer ATR is satisfied with the results booked in 2004. The maker of regional turboprops made 543 million dollars with selling both new and used airplanes and expects this figure to be higher in 2005.
ATR´s CEO Filippo Bagnato says that the market for turboprop aircraft is growing again. In 2004, ATR delivered 13 new planes to 6 companies, and a further 51 used planes changed ownership.
At this moment ATR has pending orders for 5 ATR 42-500´s and 8 ATR 72-500´s. They expect to sell 15 planes in 2005, and 18 aircraft in 2006 and 2007.
ATR is pinning its hope on India carrier Air Deccan´s decision to buy up to 30 new ATR 72-500´s. This airline is also planning to incorporate 6 used ATR´s, three 42-500´s and three 72-500´s. The Turkish Navy placed an order for 10 new ATR 72ASW maritime patrol aircraft.

FCKC, I got the information above from the article, I don´t know much more about sales. Tried to find something on Google about this but without success. Would ATR give information if you´d send them a message?
