Ryanair has announced an extension to its maintenance agreement with Joramco which will see the airline undertake 10 lines of heavy maintenance for the next 10 years at Joramco’s MRO facility in Amman, Jordan.
The extended maintenance agreement comes after Joramco recently successfully completed its 100th C-check for Ryanair.
Ryanair has plans to grow its fleet to 800 aircraft over the coming years, including the airline’s recent 300 Boeing 737 MAX-10 order.
These new, fuel-efficient, greener technology aircraft offer 21% more seats, burn 20% less fuel, and are 50% quieter than Boeing 737-NGs, and will assist the airline in carrying over 300 million passengers per year by 2034.
Ryanair’s Neal McMahon, chief operations officer at Ryanair, said: “We are delighted to announce this extended agreement for 10 maintenance lines with Joramco for the next 10 years.
“Joramco have demonstrated excellent standards in their state-of-the-art facilities, and we are pleased to extend our partnership with them for 10 maintenance lines for the next 10 years as we grow our fleet to over 800 aircraft.
“The enduring strength of this relationship is demonstrated this week as Joramco successfully completes 100 Ryanair aircraft C-checks.”
Fraser Currie, Joramco’s chief executive, said “Following the successful completion of Joramco’s 100th C-check for Ryanair, we are delighted to agree a further 10 years from 2024 for 10 maintenance lines.
“This agreement reflects our commitment to delivering safe and reliable maintenance services to Ryanair fleet, and this strategic move solidifies the partnership between Ryanair and Joramco and ensures efficient and timely C-checks for Ryanair’s growing fleet.”
