From browsing through the fleet lists at Planespotters.net, I notice a few things concerning ATR aircraft:

* There are many stored ATR72-500/600 aircraft between 2 and 15 years old, which the leasing companies (mostly NAC in this case) have a hard time placing at airlines.

* On the other hand, ATR itself also seems having a hard time to deliver new -600 models as well. Aircraft seem to be placed in storage months after their first flight, and many customers eventually decide not to pick the aircraft up. This more-or-less turns Francazal into a parking lot similar to XFW/TLS during the last A320 issues.

The issues even aggravate because FedEx (and their subcontractors) has chosen to go with new -600F builds for their short-range fleet, instead of converting some stored pax -500 or -600 machines.

And speaking of ATRs being converted to freighters to accommodate flights to remote airports, the Philippines will have two of them with Cebu Pacific. Cross-posting from a Philippine thread:

The freighter is the first of its type in the region and allows Cebu Pacific the capability to bring cargo in and out of destinations served by airports with limited length runways, where only turboprops can operate.

The ATR is equipped with a large cargo door, which allow up to seven Ld3 air cargo containers, or five PBJ pallets. The freighter has the capacity to carry as much as eight tons of cargo.

Hopefully, more of them will head to the Philippines to allow cargo to be delivered quickly and efficiently throughout the archipelago.

I'm probably being too pedantic with all my P2F conversion messages, but ATR also needs some work in the P2F segment.

Today many ATR P2F conversions in service are ATR42/72-200 and 300/320s, with -500 conversions having only started recently.

FedEx Feeder will replace all their classic models with factory-built ATR72-600F, to be delivered from 2020 onwards:
http://www.atraircraft.com/newsroom/...s-1463-en.html

There are however more ATR freighter operators than FedEx, so they also need to start to look for replacements. With the factory-built -600F ATR will of course counter or obstruct any -600 P2F programme, since that will cannibalise their own product line.

This leaves only the -500 P2F as viable ATR classic replacements, since the programme is partially OEM-supported by ATR/IPR Conversions. Feedstock is also abundant, since most -500 passenger operators are either replacing them with -600's because of the glass cockpit and other improvements, or upscaling to jets (E-Jets/CRJ or A220-100).

Consider, though, that FedEx Feeder has been using Cessna aircraft to fly cargo to remote destinations as well, which would make the ATR 72-600F a huge step forward in bringing in more cargo to far-flung places. I'm actually surprised that a humble low-cost carrier from the Philippines, Cebu Pacific, took the gamble in converting two of its existing ATR-72 aircraft from passenger to freighter, and I truly hope other airlines will be able to do so as well in the near future.
