Sabena technics extends the existing contract with PT Pelita Air Service, the Indonesia-based charter airline, by an additional five years to the global Component Support of their fleet of ATR aircraft. The initial contract began in 2013 covering a large range of solutions including pool access, repair and overhaul of rotable components including propellers as well as the initial buildup of consignment stock.

The global Component Support Solution will now be extended for five years providing support coverage for the entire fleet. Support will be carried out from Sabena technics’s worldwide network as well as from its repair facilities located in Singapore (Seletar) and France. Customers will benefit from pooling solutions in Singapore and Paris.

Their successful expansion as well as their smooth operations are our utmost focus and motivation”, said Philippe Delisle, Chief Executive Officer of Sabena technics DNR. “Our dedication and commitment enhance our support and provide a high level of services and reliability to PT Pelita Air”, he added.
“Pelita Air Service believes that a mutual collaboration between our two esteem companies would give Pelita Air Service a much better operational reliability, safety and increase our customer’s satisfaction”, said Dani Adriananta, President Director of PT Pelita Air.
