ATR and Air Calédonie announced a five year extension of their Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA). The contract will cover Pool and Repair for Line Replaceable Units for the airline’s four ATR 72-600 aircraft. This extension will also see additional Line Replaceable Units P/N and Propeller Services added into the contract. Air Calédonie uses its ATR aircraft to provide essential connectivity throughout New Caledonia’s entire domestic network of archipelagos, supporting passengers to access economic and educational opportunities, as well as supporting the provision of healthcare. Through the GMA, ATR has contributed to reducing operators’ maintenance costs and boosting their operations for over 20 years.

Eric Broutte, Technical Director of Air Calédonie commented: “Optimising maintenance costs is always important for a regional airline, but during these uncertain times, it is crucial to have support that you can rely on. ATR’s commitment to and investment in the support and services they provide makes a real difference to airlines. Extending our relationship with ATR also means that we will continue to benefit from their unrivalled expertise and experience with the aircraft. We are happy to be signing on for another five years.”

David Brigante, SVP Customer Support and Services remarked: “This contract represents another step in our shared journey with Air Calédonie which stretches back around 35 years to the delivery of the company’s first ATR 42. An aircraft is only valuable when it is flying and that is why it is vital that we provide the best possible service to our clients. Air Calédonie’s decision to extend and enhance their contract shows the quality of support that we are delivering. To meet the needs of an airline that is providing essential connectivity in a geography as diverse as New Caledonia is a real source of pride for ATR and truly demonstrates the value of our GMA.”
