Satena and Barfield extend ATR support agreement
Barfield, a Sabena technics company, started supporting the SATENA ATR fleet in December 2010 through its Airline programs business unit, dedicated to full support contracts. The services provided to the Colombian airline include component and engineering support, pool access and Main Base inventory for a total fleet of 10 aircraft supported by Barfield. Within the scope of this extension, Barfield will increase the Main Base for components in order to fit SATENA’s requirements for its fleet expansion. For the past few years, SATENA, owned by the Colombian government, has been undergoing strong fleet modernization, integrating aircraft types such as ATR42-500 and ATR72-500.
