ATR and Toki Air, a new Japanese airline, signed of a Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA) contract for the operation of its two leased ATR 72-600 due to start in 2023. Toki Air, the fourth ATR operator in Japan, aims to deploy its services to revitalise Niigata city by increasing connections within and between surrounding regions, linking communities and supporting growth in a responsible way.

The Japanese airline will ensure reliability of its new operations by benefiting from a ten year ATR GMA contract which covers onsite stock, Line Replaceable Unit Pool Exchange Service, Line Replaceable Unit Repair Service, propeller blades and landing gears.

Masaki Hasegawa, Representative Director of Toki Air, commented: “Starting our operations with ATR aircraft covered by the ATR GMA means that we will be able to offer a responsible and reliable air connection to communities of Niigata and the surrounding regions. Selecting the ATR GMA ensures that we will benefit from the manufacturer’s expertise and we have the right infrastructure in place to optimise our operations. The availability and depth of support offered by the GMA makes it the best option available for ATR operators and the right choice for us.”

David Brigante, SVP Programmes and Customer Service of ATR, said: “Toki Air is dedicated to revitalising some remote regions and supplying essential connectivity to help Japanese people living in remote areas link to larger hubs. Choosing ATR aircraft with a ten year GMA contract to support their ambition is a real vote of confidence for us. We are pleased to count Toki Air as one of our new operators and provide the right solution through our aircraft and services to support a common vision.”

For 20 years ATR has contributed through its GMA to reducing operators’ maintenance costs and boosting their operations with the highest standards of support. This ATR maintenance programme is a tailor-made pay-by-the-hour maintenance package, designed to better anticipate maintenance costs while enhancing dispatch reliability, thanks to customised and flexible solutions and pool access to spare parts.
