ATR and Air Cairo have signed a Global Maintenance Agreement at MRO Europe 2022.

Through this 5 year agreement, Air Cairo will benefit from repair, overhaul, and pooling services of Line Replaceable Units for its fleet of ATR-72-600s, which are currently being delivered.

With over 200 weekly flights to 35 international destinations, Air Cairo offers vital connectivity for local communities and tourists.

Mr Hussein Sherif, Chief Executive Officer at Air Cairo, said: “Being profitable in a low-fare environment is a day-to-day challenge, the key of which is not only to have the right aircraft, but also to make the most of them. As we are reintroducing the ATR platform in Egypt after 15 years, we want to ensure we can offer our passengers the most modern, comfortable and reliable experience. Our choice of the aircraft type will assist on the former two points, while the ATR GMA will support our effort to deliver the latter to our passengers.”

David Brigante, Senior Vice-President Customer Support and Services at ATR said: “This contributes to making regional air transport even more reliable, accessible and sustainable. We will be offering Air Cairo our expertise to ensure it can make the most of its ATR fleet, as we well know that even the most efficient aircraft is only valuable when it is flying.”
