ATR concludes Global Maintenance Agreements with 15 airlines covering more than 160 ATR aircraft
ATR Customer Support activities achieved outstanding results in 2013. The European regional aircraft manufacturer has signed this year 15 Global Maintenance Agreements (GMA) covering a total fleet of more than 160 additional aircraft. The cumulated value of all these contracts is over US$330m. This escalating success is due to ATR’s determination to build its own unique support solution, which efficiency gains today strong confidence of ATR operators all over the world. It is the result of a working investment policy oriented to develop activities related to the maintenance on- and off-aircraft. Among the GMAs signed this year, there are the Colombia-based carrier Avianca with 15 aircraft, the Indonesian national carrier Garuda with 25 aircraft and the important renewal and extension of the Brazilian Azul/Trip with a fleet of about 60 aircraft. These major deals, along with all the other GMA contracts of the year, highlight the ATR’s commitment to offer its operators more proximity and on-demand tailored services.
