Manta Air Signs 5-Year GMA with ATR

Manta Air, a new domestic airline in the Republic of Maldives, has signed a Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA) with ATR.

The five-year contract covers the repair and overhaul of easily replaceable components (Line Replaceable Units), propeller maintenance and an on-site leased stock of spare parts.

The deal also includes on-site technical support, through which a dedicated Customer Support representative assists Manta Air in their daily operations.

“Manta Air’s aim is to raise the standards of the domestic aviation industry by providing the best flying experience for our passengers, and increased connectivity in the Maldives,” said Edward Alsford, Chief Operation Officer of Manta Air. “As a tailor-made maintenance package, the ATR GMA responds specifically to our needs, and ATR’s expertise will ensure our brand new ATR 72-600s fly as much as possible. Our passengers depend on a reliable service and ATR’s GMA is a valuable tool to help us deliver this.”

Manta Air's first two ATR 72-600s, secured through Nordic Aviation Capital, were delivered in late 2018, and a third aircraft was delivered in early March 2019. The aircraft are configured with 64 seats in two classes.

Tom Anderson, Senior Vice-President Programs and Customer Services of ATR, said, “Through this partnership, Manta Air’s is benefitting from our support and expertise from the very first stages of operations, enabling them to get the most value possible from their latest generation ATR aircraft. In an increasingly competitive market, initial parts provisioning, anticipation of spares requirements, parts reliability, repair management, maintenance costs optimisation and stock management are some of our operators’ crucial challenges.”
