Joramco is to become a Spirit AeroSystems authorised MRO centre.
Under the agreement between Joramco and Spirit, the Jordan Aircraft Maintenance Company and engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) will initially provide total nacelle repair services to both Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 aircraft in partnership with Spirit AeroSystems.
Joramco and Spirit said they intended to expand the services to other platforms, including the Boeing 777.
“In early 2021, we laid out a strategy to be available ‘locally’ for our global customers. This agreement with Joramco is one of the pillars of that strategy for our regional customers,” said Spirit AeroSystems Aftermarket Solutions’ senior vice president Kailash Krishnaswamy.
“Joramco is a highly regarded MRO player, both for near- and far-reaching operators. Our strategic alliance will enable Joramco to offer a broader scope of repair services to its customers, and a broader reach of customers for us.”
Joramco’s CEO Fraser Currie commented: “We are excited to see the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that was signed with Spirit AeroSystems last year come to fruition. Spirit AeroSystems is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of aerostructures for commercial airplanes with vast capabilities and this is hopefully just the beginning of an evolving collaboration. The agreement is another key step forward for Joramco meeting the objective to expand the capabilities and enhancing the support to our global customer base.”
