Spairliners and Fokker Services have finalised a long-term agreement for MRO component support.
Fokker Services will perform MRO services for a variety of line replaceable units (LRUs) related to power generation, bleed air valves, starters and avionics for the Embraer E-Jet family.
All units will be repaired in-house at Fokker Services’ facilities in the Netherlands and the US.
“Fokker Services and Spairliners have a shared mission: to provide highly reliable aftermarket services for customers worldwide,” said Fokker Services’ CEO Menzo van der Beek. “We are delighted to be chosen by Spairliners to support their global component support solutions. With decades of repairs expertise, the team at Spairliners can count on our support for this range of critical components.
“At Fokker Services, we are continuously expanding our MRO capabilities, especially for Embraer aircraft, and we look forward to offering our strong repair solutions to Spairliners in the years to come.”
Spairliners’ managing director and CFO Benoît Rollier commented: “We are especially happy to further strengthen our supplier network with a partner that has established expertise and repair facilities both in Europe and in the US. Our collaboration with Fokker Services will help us to further increase the efficiency of our operations through better turnaround times and higher availability.
“Combined with our unique expertise in supply chain, engineering, and smart inventory management this will enable us to provide the best services to our customers, in particular as we are looking forward to expand in the Americas.”
The agreement was finalised during the recent MRO Europe show in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
