Singapore Airlines, and its subsidiary Scoot, have signed a long-term MRO contract with Collins Aerospace, for the Group’s fleet of 55 Boeing 787 aircraft.
Under the agreement, Collins will provide the airlines with full lifecycle support for high-performance pool access, maintenance services and reliability upgrades.
Products supported under the agreement include Collins’ air management systems, electric power generator and start systems, emergency power systems, fire suppression, sensors and lighting systems.
Singapore Airlines senior vice president Lau Hwa Peng said: “Our longstanding partnership with Collins Aerospace has provided our airlines with high quality maintenance and support services, even as we navigated the challenges brought about by the pandemic over the last two years. We look forward to an even closer relationship with Collins as the industry recovers in the coming years.”
The new agreement also extends Scoot’s current FlightSense program with Collins, which was signed in 2014, to include the airline’s new 787 aircraft that will be delivered in 2023.
“This contract marks a significant milestone for Collins, Singapore Airlines and Scoot in strengthening the close relationship we’ve built over the years,” added Collins Aerospace’s president Henry Brooks. “We look forward to continuing to provide the airlines with comprehensive MRO services to keep their 787s flying and optimise fleet operations.”
