The Vendors Conference, a key event for optimising ATR customer support!

ATR organised the 7th edition of the Vendors Conference, held 14 – 15 November at the Saint-Martin site. Our Top 30 equipment and system suppliers were invited to attend, alongside our Airbus and Leonardo partners. Some 100 people were present, including 60 representatives from our suppliers such as Pratt & Whitney, Thales, Safran and Zodiac, to name a few.

The conference focused on three key messages aimed at our suppliers. First and foremost, the importance of being able to count on the support of our service providers during aircraft sales campaigns. Next, the need to work together to identify ways of reducing maintenance costs. And finally, the development of alternative solutions in terms of repair and maintenance to prevent flight delays and cancellations. According to these strategic priorities and in order to prepare the future, our suppliers will have to implement the necessary actions with the aim of reaching our goals by June 2019.

The employees involved were extremely motivated and produced high-quality work to make this latest edition of the Vendors Conference a success. Feedback from our suppliers has been positive.

More than 1,200 ATR aircraft are currently in service worldwide. Providing top-quality support for ATR’s international fleet is one of our priorities.
