Mandarin Airlines adds a GMA to its partnership with ATR
More than 300 in-service aircraft are now covered by our flagship maintenance offer
Mandarin Airlines, the regional subsidiary of Taiwan’s flag carrier China Airlines, has signed a Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA). This comprehensive support package covers the repair, overhaul and pooling services of Line Replaceable Units, along with a door-to-door service through which ATR is providing transportation of spares to the airline’s facilities. The entire ATR fleet of the Taiwanese carrier – consisting of nine ATR 72-600s – is covered by this agreement, through which ATR reaches a key milestone of more than 300 in-service aircraft under GMAs.
Our partnership with Mandarin Airlines is a great example of the various capabilities of our Customer support offer. Mandarin Airlines started operating its first ATR 72-600s in February 2018 in Taiwan, where the domestic network counts 1.2 million passengers annually. The carrier has added a GMA to a broader partnership with ATR, who will be providing a full range of technical and engineering maintenance services, along with comprehensive training solutions for the airline’s flight crew, mechanics and technicians. ATR is also supporting China Airlines and its subsidiaries to set-up in-house capabilities for ATR heavy maintenance, up to C-checks.
Through our flagship maintenance offer, Mandarin Airlines will benefit from an a la carte pay-by-the-hour maintenance package, which makes it possible to maintain an adequate level of protection, while minimising stock levels, enjoying short delivery time for parts, making budget control easier and enhancing efficiency.
