Dash 8-400 —The world’s most advanced turboprop

Unmatched versatility and value

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 aircraft carries 14 more passengers than any other turboprop and has the extra payload capacity to carry their bags, all while providing more range. The Dash 8-400 aircraft is the only turboprop that is fully compliant with FAA/EASA passenger weight at any extra capacity configuration.
Flying 30% faster and 40% farther than conventional turboprops, the Dash 8-400 aircraft allows our customers to add more flights to their schedule. Outfitted with 2 passenger cabin doors as well as dedicated catering and cargo doors, it delivers faster turnaround times for even greater productivity.
With a dispatch reliability of 99.5% and the longest maintenance intervals in the industry, the Dash 8-400 aircraft spends more time in the air and less time in repair — providing an extra 270 days of flying before the next C-Check.
Thanks to the Dash 8-400 aircraft’s unique Active Noise and Vibration Suppression System, passengers can enjoy a quieter cabin. The aircraft features large windows that maximize natural light and improved LED lighting that provide for a more relaxed environment. Our optional IFE system allows passengers to access content on their personal devices and enjoy entertainment in flight.

Dash 8-400 Productivity advantage

This aircraft offers the best of both worlds: fly slower to minimize fuel burn or faster to maximize productivity. It 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.
