Barfield, Satena Extend ATR Support

[Aviation Today January 27, 2014] Colombian national carrier Satena has extended its aircraft component and engineering support contract with Barfield for its fleet of ATR 42-500s. 
 
Barfield, a subsidiary of Sabena Technics, provides component and engineering support as well as pool access for a total fleet of 10 aircraft. With the extension, Barfield is increasing its main base for components in order to meet Satena's requirements for its fleet expansion and modernization.
 
Satena has been modernizing its fleet with new ATR 42-500 and 72-500 turboprop aircraft in recent years, also adding routes in regions of "strong topography" where no commercial carriers currently fly, the airline said.
