CHARLOTTE, N.C., 17 Feb. 2009Airbus in France selected Goodrich Corp. to deliver broad maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) as well as asset management services as part of an Airbus Total Support Package (TSP) for Singapore Airlines' fleet of 19 leased Airbus A330 aircraft.
The flight hour-based support agreement, which includes Goodrich evacuation, lighting, actuation, sensors, de-icing, and power products, covers the aircraft for an initial period of five years. The maintenance work will be conducted at various Goodrich MRO facilities in Asia, Europe, and North America.
"Through the agreement we've worked with Airbus, we are able to minimize the operator's upfront investment in assets, infrastructure, and MRO capability," says Paul Snyder, president, Goodrich Customer Services. "This type of support arrangement can lower operational costs, and we are committed to working with Airbus and airline customers toward this objective."
Goodrich operates a global network of MRO campuses that offer a full range of MRO services for a multitude of Goodrich products and systems under one roof.
