ATR and Skyways Technics have strengthened a partnership that will see structural component repairs performed for Asia Pacific operators.

    Denmark-headquartered MRO Skyways has a subsidiary based in Malaysia – Skyways Technics Asia – which recently extended its structural repair workshops and warehousing facilities.

    Component repairs include leading edge repairs, flight controls and flaps. The partners said the extended relationship would allow repair solutions “at a more attractive price, with greater technical support”.

    Skyways Technics’ chief executive officer and owner Benjamin Nielsen, who recently spoke in detail about the company’s plans with MRO Management, said: “We are proud to partner with ATR, whose leadership of the regional aviation market shows both the quality and importance of their aircraft.

    “With the industry facing its worst ever crisis, now it is vital to offer airlines innovative and creative solutions to keep their aircraft and passengers flying. Partnerships such as this one will play an important role in supporting the recovery of operators, who are continuing to supply essential connectivity to the communities that they serve throughout the Asia Pacific region.”

    ATR’s SVP programmes and customer support David Brigante commented: “As a manufacturer we are always looking for opportunities to improve our offer to our airlines and customers. This partnership allows us to consolidate and improve our GMA offer. Operators can benefit from the best of both worlds; a specialised repair partner and the manufacturer’s expertise.

    “Skyways Technics’ strong local presence in Asia Pacific also guarantees our operators in the region the best quality leading edge, flap and flight control repairs, managed in a timely and cost-effective manner.”
