European LCC Ryanair has announced an expansion in Amman by confirming a five-year heavy maintenance agreement with Joramco, the MRO provider based in Jordan and the engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE). This agreement will further extend the partnership and will see the airline utilising up to six heavy maintenance lines at its facility in Amman in Jordan, where Joramco is set to conduct 41 checks during this winter season.
This agreement ensures that the airline has continued flexibility as to where it places its aircraft for the upcoming maintenance season. The 110,000sq metre facility will facilitate the heavy maintenance of the airline’s fleet.
Ryanair uses a mix of internal facilities and external suppliers to conduct its heavy maintenance. The airline group continues to invest in internal heavy maintenance facilities and this agreement will complement these facilities and ensure the maintenance requirements are more than met over the coming years.
Speaking in Jordan, Ryanair’s Chief Operations Officer, Neal McMahon, said: “We are thrilled to announce our expansion in Amman confirming our five-year heavy maintenance agreement with Joramco. Joramco have been providing heavy maintenance for our fleet for the past four years however, this agreement allows Ryanair to utilise up to six heavy maintenance lines and conduct 41 checks this Winter season”.
Commenting on this agreement Joramco’s Chief Executive Officer, Fraser Currie, said; “Joramco is delighted to have been supporting Ryanair with base maintenance for the last four years. This agreement is testament to the vision and dedication of the Ryanair heavy maintenance management team and the excellent services delivered by the entire team at Joramco. We look forward to growing and enhancing the relationship in Jordan and delivering amazing opportunities for both the local workforce in Jordan and Ryanair’s customers.”
