The support includes OEM parts & warranty, dedicated 24/7 customer service, quick turn-around-time, performance guarantee, reliability monitoring services to ensure top quality  and exchange inventory available to support the next removal.

Paul Vorstermans, Vice President of GKN Fokker Services said: “As a leading Aerospace Service Provider, we are proud to be chosen by UTAS as a licensee in support of CRJ operators in the EMEA and APAC region; we bring added value based on many years of experience in supporting component MRO, our high quality standards including FAA, EASA and CAAC approvals, and our service expertise. We look forward to supporting our customers and to further expand our relationship as UTAS’ channel partner.”
