At the recent Regional Airlines Association (RAA) Leaders Conference in late September in Washington, De Havilland Canada (DHC) highlighted a new 65-seat cabin version for the Dash 8-400. New, in particular, is the option to include Premium Economy seating on the turboprop aircraft. So we asked DHC to further explain what this three-class cabin is all about and update us on the status of the Dash 8-400 production since the closure of the Downsview site. Three-class Dash 8-400 targets regional jets.
De Havilland Canada usually advertises the Dash 8-400 as a 90-seater, although many operators prefer a 72 to 76 seat layout. Some airlines have opted for a single-class version while others offer a Business Class.
