Magnetic MRO has successfully completed its ATR program for Finland flag carrier, Finnair.
During the course of the program, 12 aircraft received interior modifications and 11 of them left the company’s hangars in Tallinn with a new livery. The aircraft are operated for Finnair by its partner company Norra.
“Finnair ATR 72 interior and exterior refurbishment program was a complex process which involved multiple Magnetic MRO departments, including painting, line maintenance and interior production,” said Rihards Priedkalns, Aircraft Paintshop Manager at Magnetic MRO. “The synergy between them was outstanding thus we are extremely happy with the results and the positive feedback received from our client.”
The contract for complete paintwork, full interior refurbishment and maintenance on all 12 of the aircraft was signed in spring 2019. The first aircraft was delivered from Magnetic MRO’s Tallinn hangars to the customer on May 8, 2019.
” I can’t claim that I am a paint expert, but I did use up a couple of boxes of red tape on paint inspections in my delivery days,” said Pauliina Heikkilä, Finnair’s representative. “So, accepting something this good with only maybe a total of 50 cm red tape needed for the entire aircraft, was something new to me.”
