This development shown question in my opinion, the optimism on Turboprop manufacturer for future of this type. Eventough ATR still think the market for Turboprop still growing, however recent developments put that in question.
De Haviland already stop production of Q400 (eventough they claim only temporary due to COVID condition). Now the US Airlines as the biggest market in the world (so far until China take over), also dropping Turboprop for regional Jets. Even China eventough still have Turboprop Airliners in their Production line, however for shorter range choose more and more toward to their Regional Jet ARJ-21.
Even if the Market for Turboprop still exists, but it's relegated toward smaller range (below 300-400 miles) or remote region. Even the capacity only for less than 70 pac.
For me this raise question on business viability of some in Indonesia that wants to build large Turboprop above 70 pac. Are they not reading the market trend ??
