Finnair’s ATR 72 fleet receives interiors modifications


Magnetic MRO has completed an ATR programme for Finnair’s regional subsidiary, Norra, with 12 aircraft receiving interior modifications. 11 of the aircraft have also left the company’s hangars in Tallinn, Estonia with a new livery.

The scope of the contract included complete paintwork, full interior refurbishment and maintenance on all 12 of Norra’s ATR 72 fleet was signed in spring 2019 and the first aircraft was delivered from Magnetic MRO’s Tallinn hangars to the customer on 8 May 2019. The agreement included painting 11 of the ATR aircraft into the Finnair livery.

In addition to the new livery, the aircraft were given a full interior refurbishment., which for Magnetic MRO’s Interior team, involved producing the largest number of new details for an aircraft that the company has ever manufactured for a single interior project. These details included new kick strips, stickers, latches and hinges for overhead bins, and other design elements.

“I can’t claim to be a paint expert, but I did use up a couple of boxes of red tape on paint inspections in my delivery days. So accepting something this good with only maybe a total of 50cm red tape needed for the entire aircraft, was something new to me,” stated Pauliina Heikkilä, Finnair’s representative.
