With this agreement, the aerospace company is able to call on Sabena technics for a scope of nacelle repairs that bring the Go Team’s resources directly “on wing” all over the world.
Backed by Safran’s expertise, the Sabena technics Go Team provides in-field services and a new dimension to Safran’s NacelleLifeTM services offering programme.
“We made our selection based on Sabena technics’ ability to deploy its expert Go Teams around the world when repairs are needed,” said Olivier Savin, Safran Nacelles’ executive vice president, customer support & services.
“This reactivity is fully supported by the know-how of Safran Nacelles as the nacelle OEM, along with our own services capabilities and our extensive knowledge in developing and implementing repairs.”
He added that current production rates and growing customer numbers, especially low-cost carriers requiring a fast response, means that Safran has to look for outside resources. The company will be providing training to the Go Teams.
Sabena technics has been operating its Go Team worldwide mobile workforce for over five years.
The teams bring together more 50 qualified and autonomous technicians with EASA Part 145 approval, providing solutions for time-sensitive and aircraft-on-ground (AOG) repairs.
