ATR has opened an office in Beijing in order to cover China, Mongolia, Korea and Japan. ATR is already present in China via Urumqi-based Xinjiang Airlines who have been operating five ATR 72-500 aircraft, delivered between 1997 and 1998. China has also been significantly involved for many years in the manufacturing of full sections of the ATR 72 fuselage and ATR 42 wings.

ATR is already well established in the Asia Pacific area with a support and marketing office in Singapore and a Training centre in Bangkok. Currently 88 aircraft are operated by 19 airlines in this area.
