Liebherr-Aerospace’s new integrated air management system has entered into service with ASL Airlines Ireland (on its new freighter aircraft ATR 72-600).
The newly enhanced system improves on-board comfort for passengers and crew while substantially reducing operational costs.
“In today’s competitive aviation landscape, it is imperative to constantly evaluate best-in-class partners, and Liebherr was able to deliver not only cost-effectiveness, but, most importantly, performance enhancements,” said David Brigante, ATR Senior Vice President Programmes and Customer Services. “Liebherr’s footprint in our ATR family has now been expanded from pressurisation and anti-ice components to bleed and air management systems as well as ground cooling systems,” he continued.
Under the ATR Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA) Liebherr-Aerospace will also be the exclusive product support provider for the new air management system worldwide. The 10-year agreement will be carried out by Liebherr-Aerospace’s service stations in Toulouse (France), Singapore and Saline, Michigan (US). Developments are well under way to provide ATR with cutting edge technology that includes predictive maintenance services.
