China Aircraft Services Limited (CASL) started the new year by signing two new agreements that will see it expand its services in Hong Kong.
The company firstly announced a line maintenance contract for the narrow-body fleet of Cathay Dragon at Hong Kong International Airport. This new agreement will extend CASL’s line maintenance and other operations services to Cathay Dragon’s A321neo fleet, making CASL the centre of excellence for the Cathay Pacific Group’s A320 family of aircraft.
CASL will also share digitalised maintenance data with Cathay Pacific Group, which will help support specific business development initiatives, as well as broader “big data” projects. CASL’s digitalisation programme will benefit the overall business development of both companies, including but not limited to maintenance and engineering-related projects.
CASL also signed a line maintenance contract with HK Express on January 16, further enhancing the relationship with the airline. “We thank HK Express for trusting our service and dedication to safety as CASL continues to provide reliable services to the HK Express fleet including A320neo,” said a company statement.
CASL has grown its capabilities and client base in recent months. The company expanded technical support to Spring Airlines starting from November 2019. CASL delivers the provision of transit handling, certificate of release to service, ground service equipment and other services to Spring Airlines.
Established in 2004, Spring Airlines is one of the most profitable airlines in the country, operating 90 aircraft with a single type of A320CEO/NEO mono-class. Today, the airline operates numerous routes, with 18 flights per week to Hong Kong International Airport.
Spring Airlines owns 1.15 per cent shares of China Southern Airlines, which is one of CASL’s shareholders.
