Austria’s InterSky becomes launch customer for ATR Leading Edge exchange and repair service
InterSky, the Austria-based regional carrier, and ATR have signed a 3-year agreement for a brand new exchange, repair and overhaul service for leading edges of the wing and control surface ribs. Casting this new service, ATR adds greater flexibility to its wide range of specialist services and bespoke solutions known as the Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA), proposed by ATR to all its operators worldwide. The new Leading Edge maintenance service will help ATR customers to further increase their operational flexibility and dispatch reliability, meeting their requirements in regard to fully serviceable leading edge availability for their ATR fleet. The leading edge exchange and repair service include replacement of the de-icer boot along with structural repair options. Complete re-skinning of wing leading edge outer surfaces may be performed, when necessary. The comprehensive spares availability at ATR certified repair shops worldwide guarantees reliable uninterrupted operations without major capital investments.
