Safran Nacelles has been awarded a 12-year repair contract by Corsair for the nacelles on the airline’s five A330 neo aircraft.

    The ‘NacelleLife’ contract covers the repair of the nacelles and the general service of the thrust reverser at the time of their programmed removals. Work will be carried out on-site and at Safran’s MRO centres.

    “I am delighted that Corsair is renewing its trust in Safran Nacelles following their first contract on their Airbus A330ceo nacelle fleet in 2019,” said Safran Nacelles’ executive vice president – sales & marketing.

    “This new contract for the A330neo nacelles demonstrates that we are a partner of choice when it comes to the support and service of its nacelles.”

    Corsair’s fleet & technical director Enea Fracassi commented: “This contract is part of a global action that aims to improve the cost and efficiency of our fleet maintenance.

    “Aircraft on ground occurrences will therefore be reduced and the work of our teams eased during the maintenance of our A330neo aircraft.”
