Etihad Airways has selected OEMServices to provide component support on its fleet of A320/A321 family aircraft.
As part of the five-year contract, OEMServices will provide 24/7 component support with spare parts available locally in the UAE, as well as transport and repair services for the A320/A321 family aircraft.
Etihad said OEMServices’ expertise in servicing operator maintenance would help minimise downtime and optimise repair times.
“Etihad Airways is proud of continually setting the standard for operational excellence and ensuring the highest standards for its aircraft. In strengthening this partnership, Etihad looks forward to working closely together with OEMServices to ensure optimal fleet reliability and efficiency,” said Etihad’s chief operating officer Mohammad Al Bulooki.
“As the aviation industry enters the post-pandemic era of travel, Etihad continues its relentless pursuit of setting the benchmark for operational excellence in technical performance and efficiency.”
OEMServices’ president and CEO Didier Granger commented: “We are proud that Etihad Airways, a market leader, has trusted us with the maintenance support for its A320 fleet, which strengthens our partnership. It is a great satisfaction to be selected but it is an even a greater satisfaction to be chosen again by our customers.
“After seven years of fruitful cooperation with such an important company, I would like to express my gratitude and pride for this contract award. This further confirms our strategic position in the Middle East and we intend to pursue our investments in the region in the coming years to support our airline customers.”
