Ethiopian Airlines has contracted OEMServices to provide component support for its A350 fleet in a multi-year deal.

    Under the scope of the contract, OEMServices will support Ethiopian Airlines’ 24 Airbus A350-900s, of which 16 are currently in service with the remaining eight on order.

    OEMServices said it would extend its existing pool in Dubai to cover A350 aircraft components and to service current and future Middle East and African customers.

    “We are happy to demonstrate the added value of our original approach, based on our services integration skills and our technical expertise in the A350 fleet,” said OEMServices’ president Didier Granger. “Ethiopian Airlines can rely on our team to support their operations.”

    Ethiopian Airlines Group chief executive officer Tewolde GebreMariam commented: “It gives me great pleasure to reach an agreement with OEMServices, one of the leading part providers and OEM integrators, to support the Ethiopian A350-900 fleet on component maintenance and spare services.

    “The signing of a 10-year contract with a leading service provider shows Ethiopian’s commitment to deliver the best service to its customers and ensure the reliability of its A350 fleet.”
