Having delivered the first Saab 340 cargo conversion for 2021 in January and another already in the workshops, Täby Air Maintenance, TAM, expects 2021 to be at least as good as 2020.
With a world-wide reputation as a premier service provider for regional airliners, the current portfolio of services offered – maintenance and overhaul of Saab 340 and Saab 2000, complemented in 2020 with the
ATR72 family, extensive rebuilds, modifications and cargo conversions of Saab 340s – has proved to be the right concept.
“With an attractive mix of services, we can summarize the year 2020 as a rather good year for TAM, business-wise. The decision to include the ATR72 in our service portfolio, with the first two aircraft fully refurbished aircraft delivered to KrasAvia last November, was a right move with more ATRs coming this spring,” said Pär Gulle, TAM Managing Director.
“However, apart from the pandemic, we see there is currently a strong business disturbance due to Brexit. The exit agreement between the U.K. and the EU is in place, but a number of more detailed issues connected to Brexit remain to be solved, limiting our ability to serve our U.K. customers the way we would prefer,” Pär Gulle remarks.
“Still, we see with confidence to the year that lies ahead, as we have a world-wide customer base for our Saab 340 and Saab 2000 maintenance, overhaul and rebuild programs including our cargo conversion program for the Saab 340. With one aircraft already delivered in January to a North American customer, and a second in the modification line for a European cargo airline, we expect the number of conversions this year to reach an all-time high.”
