ATR, the world’s leading turboprop manufacturer, and the Indonesian airline TransNusa announce the extension of their Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA).
  Signed in 2014, the initial contract 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 the domestic carrier’s fleet of two ATR 72-600s.


 
The GMA between ATR and TransNusa will now be extended for several additional years and the number of aircraft covered will increase from two to five. TransNusa is progressively introducing 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” declared Tom Anderson, Senior Vice-President Programs and Customer Services of ATR.
 
Bayu Sutanto, Managing Director of TransNusa, commented: “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.”
 
Today, one third of the total ATR fleet in operation is covered by ATR GMAs. The Indonesian market is of particular significance for ATR, as nearly 100 ATR aircraft are operated by twelve airlines in the country. Thanks to a large network of customer services centers and spare parts warehouses all over the world, ATR is able to provide its operators with 24/7 assistance through a single interface, thus simplifying the maintenance operations of their aircraft.
