Joramco has won a five-year heavy maintenance contract with low-cost carrier Ryanair.
The Jordan-based MRO – the engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) – said the agreement would see Ryanair utilising up to six heavy maintenance bay slots at its facility in Amman.
Ryanair uses a mix of internal facilities and external suppliers to conduct its heavy maintenance.
Joramco’s chief executive officer Fraser Currie said: “We are delighted that Ryanair has selected Joramco to be its trusted MRO provider as Ryanair grows its fleet. This long-term partnership is a result of Joramco’s world-class expertise and efficient services. This growth comes after completion of another successful winter season with Ryanair. This deal is a significant factor in our strategic growth and road map which is expected to see an increase in Joramco’s footprint.”
Ryanair’s director of operations Neal McMahon commented: “Our five-year growth plan will grow our fleet to over 600 aircraft and we are pleased to extend and enhance our agreement with Joramco who have been providing ad-hoc maintenance for our fleet for the past thre years. This agreement will allow Ryanair to utilise up to six heavy maintenance slots, with aircraft coming in nose to tail for the next five winter seasons.
“Joramco is a long-established maintenance provider with state-of-the-art facilities and over 50 customers around the world. It has an excellent reputation for a quality service offering in the industry and we are pleased to be announcing this new and enhanced deal. This agreement will ensure that Ryanair has flexibility as to where it places its aircraft for the winter maintenance season.”
