GATES signs long-term repair and overhaul agreement with Atlas Air

GA Telesis Engine Services (GATES), a wholly owned subsidiary of GA Telesis, has signed a long-term engine maintenance and services agreement with Atlas Air. The seven-year comprehensive repair and overhaul agreement covers Atlas Air’s CF6-80C2B engines. The engines that are part of this agreement are operated on the Atlas Boeing 747-400F and 767-300F fleets and services will be performed by the talented team of technicians at GATES‘ Helsinki Airport facility.

“This agreement represents the next phase in the growth plan of GATES and is a true testimony to the quality and customer care GATES has been demonstrating over the years,” said Abdol Moabery, CEO GA Telesis.

“This agreement demonstrates the long-term partnership and customer commitment model built by our COO/CCO Carsten Holm’s team and the continued efforts of the GATES Customer Support Department. I am extremely proud of our achievement thus far and look forward to having our Production Team exceed Atlas Air’s expectations around this agreement,” said Jukka Laurila, President & Director of GATES.

“We value our long-standing relationship with GATES as they continue to provide the high levels of service and favourable costing required,” said Larry Gibbons, Atlas Air Senior Vice President Technical Operations and Chief Procurement Officer.

The agreement with Atlas represents approximately a quarter of GATES’ annual capacity.
