The ATR 72 was developed by ATR of France and Italy as a need for a turboprop airliner with greater passenger capacity was realized and the technology was developed to allow for such.

In designing the ATR 72, the company used the basic constructs of the ATR 42, one of the most popular turboprop airliners ever developed and stretched the fuselage by adding an additional 15 feet. Then the wings were extended and many new technologies were employed to make the aircraft just as efficient so as to maintain range while allowing for extra weight. In addition, the fuel capacity was increased by 10% and a restructuring of the load balance allowed engineers to meet all goals.
