Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 15 April 2015

ATR and the Brazilian airline Azul have signed a contract to renew the global maintenance of the carrier's ATR fleet, made up of almost 60 aircraft, mainly ATR 72-600s and ATR 72-500s.

The GMA (Global Maintenance Agreement) is for a duration of five years, and includes the provision of a stock of spare parts at the company's facilities, including mainly LRUs (Line Replacement Units).

The agreement also includes the management of the repair and restocking of these parts, as well as a repair service for propeller blades and landing gear.

Through this agreement, Azul will also have access to the new warehouse that ATR is about to open in So Paulo, in partnership with Helibras.

Cesar Okajima, Director of the Azul Supply Chain, said, "Given the size of our ATR fleet, it is essential that we ensure that we have quick access to a large stock of spare parts for our aircraft. Likewise, it is important for us to be able to rely on the expertise and knowledge of the manufacturer regarding the management of repairs for certain parts and equipment. The success of our operations is based on our joint capabilities to ensure efficient availability of all stock and services."
