ATR has partnered Helibras to set up a new warehouse in Brazil.

The stock of spare parts will be housed in So Paulo on the premises of Helibras, a Brazilian Customer Center of Airbus Helicopters.

In these new facilities, ATR will make a stock of spare parts available including Line Replacement Units, in direct support of its GMA (Global Maintenance Agreement) service for its Brazilian customers.

The new center, which is part of ATR's approach of always being as close as possible to its operators, is the sixth of this type for ATR, which already has other spare parts centers in Paris, Miami, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Auckland (New Zealand).

Flvio Pires, Support and Services Vice-President from Helibras, said that they were "very pleased to accommodate the ATR stock in our facilities in So Paulo, and to contribute to the consolidation of ATR's activities in Brazil. We are part of the same family, through our common shareholder. It seems very fitting to provide our support in terms of logistics and stock management so that ATR can develop a support network in Brazil on a par with its commercial success in the region."

The fleet of ATRs in operation in the Latin America region has increased since 2005 from 70 aircraft to almost 180, and will exceed 200 aircraft next year.
