HAECO is to become Rolls-Royce’s principal provider of global on-wing and in-field services for large civil aero engines.
An agreement between the companies to that effect was announced today (20 October) at the MRO Europe show in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
The partners said Rolls-Royce would be able to “further enhance [its] customer experience by providing airlines with greater capacity and capability through HAECO’s global network”.
As part of the agreement, HAECO will expand its network into London and the Middle East, including the operation of a London Heathrow Airport based service centre. The facility will provide round-the-clock specialist maintenance and support for aero engines, HAECO said.
“We welcome this agreement with HAECO. It will allow us to provide our customers with greater on-wing services support across our global network at a time when many airlines are seeing their fleets return to more robust levels of activity,” said Rolls-Royce’s senior vice president – services operations, civil aerospace Lee McConnellogue.
“Partnerships such as these help us help our customers as they recover from the impact of Covid and continue to grow into the future.”
HAECO Group’s director components & engine services Angus Barclay commented: “This agreement builds upon the long-standing, close relationship between Rolls-Royce and HAECO for engine MRO services. We look forward to supporting Rolls-Royce and their customers with our global on-wing and in-field services.”
