The Dash 8-400 is the most productive turboprop on the market. Known as the “network builder” due to its short take-off and landing capabilities and efficient regional operations, it comes equipped with more seats, more legroom, more cargo and offers more flights per day.
The Dash 8-400 offers the best of both worlds: fly slower to minimize fuel burn or faster to maximize productivity. This aircraft offers the same trip cost as competing 76-seat turboprops but can be configured to fit a maximum of 90 seats (for a total of 14 more). When compared to a larger jet aircraft, the trip cost is substantially lower at half the cost. With more seats, more trips per day and longer maintenance intervals, the Dash 8-400 adds over $8 million more value per aircraft.
