A New Silver Takes Off

The ATR 600 series embodies today’s most advanced regional aircraft, with new avionics, powerful engines, and state-of-the-art technology that ensure safe, quick and relaxed travel to your destination.

Silver’s new ATR aircraft will replace our SAAB fleet starting this year – upon regulatory approval in progress – and continuing through 2019. This gallery shows the vibrant livery that we designed for our new fleet.

Main Benefits


In case you missed it, Silver’s new ATR 600s are new. That “new plane smell”? Yes!

ATR will be replacing our current fleet of Saab 340s, which were last produced in 1998.


The new ATRs are rolling off the assembly lines now. That’s right – brand new! Maintenance will be scheduled, not reconstructive, translating to fewer delays to fix issues. We always put safety first, and now it will be easier and faster to do so!


The ATRs are designed and built in France and Italy. Search no farther for two of the best centers of industrial design and high-end performance manufacturing. Think Bugatti or Maserati, and you’ll get our point.

Want to get there fast? The ATRs cruise at 345 mph, much faster than the Saabs, and more fuel efficiently, too. With special engine boosters, the ATRs make short work of shorter runways, too, an important benefit when flying to smaller islands in the Bahamas.


ATR is focused 100% on planes for regional airlines like Silver. With structures built with up to 20% composite materials, they are fuel efficient and green.


The ATRs will have 46 seats, 12 more than our retiring Saabs. That’s quite a few more friends who can join you – maybe enough for an entire wedding party. The seats will have more legroom, too, with up to 33 inches of pitch, three inches more than the Saabs.

ATRs are extremely reliable, with 30 million flight hours as of July, 2017. Every 8 seconds, an ATR takes off or lands somewhere in the world. ATRs are the best-selling regional aircraft. And now, they’re coming to Silver!


Are you above average height? The ATRs have 6’3” of headroom down the aisle. That means less stooping. And, they feature 101” of cabin width, 16” greater than the Saabs, which translates into more elbow room, and more space for your carry ons, too.

With a full-load range of about 700 miles, the ATRs easily reach all of Silver’s destinations, and then some.
