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.
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.
