Aug 01, 2017: ATR, the world’s leading turboprop manufacturer, and TransNusa, an Indonesian domestic airline extend their Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA).
Signed in 2014, the initial agreement covered the repair, overhaul and pooling services of Line Replaceable Units, along with Propeller services, Fuel Nozzle services and an On-Site Stock support for TransNusa’s fleet of two ATR 72-600s.
The GMA between ATR and TransNusa will now be extended for several years and the number of aircraft covered will increase from two to five. TransNusa is launching three additional ATRs into its fleet: two ATR 42-500s and one ATR 72-600.
“We are pleased to extend our maintenance agreement with TransNusa, as it is the best proof operators can give ATR regarding the quality and economics of our after-sales activities. Customer care and support services are at the heart of our drive to remain the regional leader. TransNusa are hereby ensuring that they benefit from the highest standards of maintenance and availability” commented Tom Anderson, senior vice-president programmes and customer services of ATR.
Bayu Sutanto, managing director of TransNusa, said, “We are delighted to further expand our partnership with ATR. As we have decided to introduce new ATR aircraft into our fleet, we want to ensure that we benefit from the aircraft manufacturer’s state-of-the-art expertise to ensure optimal daily operations.”
