SKY Express Airlines has appointed Fokker Services as exclusive maintenance provider for its ATR propeller blades and hubs.
In addition to providing MRO support for scheduled and unscheduled component removals, Fokker Services will utilise its on-site stock of propeller parts “to ensure fast turnaround times”.
The three-year programme covers the airline’s entire ATR 42 and 72 fleet.
“At Fokker Services, we are proud to provide maintenance support to SKY Express, an operator with one of the greenest and youngest fleets in Europe,” said Fokker Services’ sales manager Niels Elshof.
“This forward-thinking, rapidly growing airline has ambitious plans for the future, and we will ensure their operations continue to run smoothly along the way with our well-established MRO expertise. With our shared positive outlook, we are excited to begin our collaboration.”
SKY Express’ purchasing manager Maria Zannikou commented: “At SKY Express we prove our commitment to even the farthest points in Greece, every day in practice, by adapting high-quality services to our eco-consciousness. Today, we operate the greenest and youngest fleet in the country and one of the most eco-friendly ones in all of Europe.
“In order to stay up to the task, we have collaborated for its support with the absolute best.”
Fokker Services first established repair services for ATR blades and hubs in 2015.
