The world’s most advanced turboprop

Dash 8-400 Aircraft

Unmatched versatility and value

The Dash 8-400, is the most productive turboprop on the market, and is 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, making it the most productive turboprop on the market.

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 weights at any extra capacity configuration.
Flying 30% faster and 40% further than conventional turboprops, the Dash 8-400 aircraft allows our customers to add more flights to their schedule. Outfitted with 2 passenger cabin doors, 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 will spend more time in the air and less time in repair. By 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 also 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.

Productivity advantage

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). And 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.
