In September 2021, the global commercial airline fleet numbers about 35,500 aircraft, with some 5,750 of those being turboprops. About 40% of those turboprops come from two manufacturers, ATR and De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited, and operate in the large turboprop market of 46- to 90-seat aircraft.
ATR, a partnership between Airbus and Leonardo, produces the most popular current-generation turboprop with about 1,200 aircraft in operation. The aircraft is considered a workhorse of the fleet and was first launched in the late 1980s as the ATR72-200. The -200 was superseded by the -500 series in 1995, followed by the current ATR600 series from 2011.
