Collins Aerospace Expands Propeller MRO Services in Malaysia to Accommodate Growing ATR Fleets in Asia Pacific

  • Starting in 2022, IATA III ATR 42/72 operators will have access to a local pool of rotable spares and MRO services for Collins 568F propeller

To better serve growing ATR fleets in the Asia Pacific region, Collins Aerospace is launching new MRO capabilities for its 568F propeller at its Malaysia campus. IATA III operators of ATR 42 and ATR 72 turboprop aircraft will have access to a local pool of rotable spares. Collins will begin standing up the new services in 2022.

Initially, the exchange program will be supported by local operations to assess hardware preservation and condition, while the repairs and major inspections will be supported by Collins’ existing MRO centers in Europe, ensuring operators receive comprehensive and top quality OEM services.

“In the next decade, the ATR fleet is poised to enjoy significant growth in the Asia Pacific region and we’ll be there to support the increased demand,” said Nicolas Lérisson, aftermarket director, Propeller Systems for Collins Aerospace. “These new, local MRO services will bring faster exchanges and reduced transportation costs to our airline customers—ultimately supporting more efficient operations.”
