Czech Airlines has entered a seven-year Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA) with ATR, valued at over $14 million, covering the repair of the Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) of the carrier's 12 ATR aircraft.

With the signing of this contract, Czech Airlines has also become the launch customer of ATR's Door-2-Door service. Under this new customer support option, ATR takes full responsibility of the entire supply chain management process, including the complete hand-over delivery process.

Commenting on the agreement, Roman Planička, vice-president technical of Czech Airlines, declared, “The signature of this GMA shows our commitment to ensure an optimal maintenance of our ATR aircraft fleet. We have chosen ATR because it has a full understanding of our needs and has proven to have the highest flexibility to provide us with the most adapted services to match our operational requirements.”

Jean-Pierre Cousserans, ATR SVP customer services, remarked, “We are honoured by the confidence shown by Czech Airlines and delighted to further develop our partnership with the signature of GMA and, for the first time, our new Door-2-Door service. We are glad to see Czech Airlines benefiting from this major improvement of our customer support policy.”
