Liebherr-Aerospace and ATR signed recently a ten-year agreement covering the supply of components, repairs and associated Pay-by-the-Hour services for the more than 300 ATR42/72-600 aircraft fleet.

After two years of development, the new air management system developed and manufactured by Liebherr-Aerospace, will enter into service next year on ATR’s 42/72 aircraft family. The regional aircraft program will benefit from this highly reliable system as it generates and enhances on-board comfort for passengers and crew while substantially reducing operation costs.

ATR extends its confidence for ten years by entrusting Liebherr-Aerospace with the comprehensive product support and services for its fleet managed through its Global Maintenance Agreement, as Liebherr-Aerospace will handle the maintenance services for ATR operators through a back-to-back contract. The support services will be performed by Liebherr-Aerospace’s service stations in Toulouse (France), center of excellence for air management systems, and Liebherr-Aerospace’s service stations in   Singapore and Saline, Michigan (USA). 

Liebherr will also include predictive maintenance services, to enhance the support of the aircraft operators, by reducing operational interruptions (OI rate), optimizing the Line Replaceable Units spares inventory planning, and reinforcing the capabilities in fleet technical management with deeper understanding of the component behavior. The Original Equipment Manufacturer will develop an advanced algorithm to analyze data of the new air management system, taking advantage of its thorough product and system know-how. 

“We feel comfortable to work with OEM Liebherr-Aerospace in order to support our GMA fleet, which today covers more than 350 aircraft. Liebherr provides a high level of performance and flexibility and understands what we expect, in order to ensure the operational needs of our operators. We are also looking forward to offering the possibility of benefitting from Liebherr-Aerospace’s predictive maintenance service, to our GMA clients”, commented Laurent Caballe, ATR VP Products and Services.  

“This agreement is a major milestone for us and we are grateful that ATR puts its trust in us. Our main objective is always to offer best-in-class support and services solutions to our customers and to meet ATR’s and the operators’ expectations in terms of dispatch reliability, product support and services. Our support team worldwide offers the best solution to our customer ATR and strives to ensure satisfaction”, said Thierry Gourmanel, Head of Sales and Marketing from Customer Services, Liebherr-Aerospace.
