Snecma Services and Aeroflot sign new long-term contract
Paris, June 19, 2007
Aeroflot Russian Airlines has awarded Snecma Services an exclusive 10-year engine maintenance contract, covering all CFM56-5B engines powering the seven new Airbus A320 twinjets acquired by the airlines in 2006 and 2007.
This latest long-term agreement further bolsters the airline’s relationship with the OEM shop and CFM56 expert, established several years ago. Since 2003, the airline’s A320 engines have been covered by engine service per hour (ESPH) contracts with Snecma Services. With this latest contract, the Russian national flag carrier confirms its total confidence in its MRO service provider. Snecma Services is now in charge of 32 CFM56-5B engines for the airline.
Under the terms of the new contract, as with the current contract, Snecma Services will provide comprehensive maintenance support for all of the engines, including engine repair and overhaul, exchange and repair of LRUs removed during line maintenance, guaranteed access to lease spare engines.
“The Russian aviation market has been and continues to be a primary focus for Snecma Services. We are very proud that Aeroflot, one of the premier names in this market, has renewed its confidence in Snecma Services by selecting us to provide engine MRO for its latest A320s,” said Jean-Lin Fournereaux, Chairman and CEO of Snecma Services.
“We are very satisfied with Snecma Services’ track record of responsiveness and willingness to work with Aeroflot and its lessors to find creative and flexible solutions to all of our engine support needs,” said Mr. Okulov, General Director of Aeroflot Russian Airlines.
Aeroflot Russian Airlines is the largest Russian airline, operating international and domestic passenger services to destinations in almost 50 countries throughout Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. This steadily growing airline now carries over 7 million passengers around the world.
