Swedish regional airline Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) started the implementation of its new ATR Global Maintenance Agreement on 1 January.
This follows the signing of this milestone agreement with ATR in June 2018 that further strengthens the strong relationship between the two companies.
Covering BRA’s entire ATR fleet of ten ATR 72-600s, this full-service package covers repair, overhaul, pooling services of Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) and transportation of LRUs to the airline’s facilities. The contract is for a period of five years.
BRA chief executive officer, Christian Clemens said: “With a large fleet of ATRs, we must be able to benefit from the most suitable services, with responsiveness and efficiency, in order to best operate our aircraft. The launch of this Global Maintenance Agreement signed with ATR is one step further in the bonds of trust that unite us.”
BRA transports more than one-third of passengers on domestic flights in Sweden, and operates 26 routes across the country from Umeå in the north to Malmö in the south.
ATR’s global fleet represents over 1,200 aircraft. More than a quarter of them are operated in Europe by nearly 70 airlines.
