ATR turboprop aircraft maintenance is being developed in Finland as a result of
a joint venture by Finnair and Finncomm Airlines. The company, Finnish Aircraft Maintenance, will be located in the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport area, with operations slated to begin by year-end.

“The goal of the company is to produce high-quality maintenance for ATR operators,” said Kimmo Soini, senior vice president of Finnair’s technical division. According to Soini, ATR sales have reached record levels in the past three years and the need for maintenance is increasing.
