Canadian maintenance, repair and overhaul firm ExelTech Aerospace reached a heavy maintenance agreement with Portuguese regional carrier SATA Air Acores covering the carrier's first two Bombardier Dash 8-200 aircraft.

Montreal-based ExelTech says it competed with other MRO providers in both North America and Europe to win the new business.

The carrier plans to incorporate the 37-seat -200 turboprops into its fleet later this year followed by the first of four larger 70-seat Q400 turboprops next year. In March 2008 SATA Air Acores announced the acquisition of four Q400s.
