Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) said that its engineering division and Amman-based MRO Joramco and Dubai-based carrier flydubai have renewed the agreement to provide the carrier with heavy maintenance solutions for its fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft.
Under this agreement Joramco will perform up to 45 C checks and EIS checks from January 2019. In addition, Joramco will perform avionics and cabin modifications including broad band modifications.
Commenting on this agreement, Jeff Wilkinson, Joramco chief executive officer, said: “We are delighted that flydubai is extending its agreement with Joramco. We value our partnership with flydubai which started in 2013. This collaboration demonstrates our commitment to excellence through providing value added services and ensures that our customers meet their operational targets.”
“In the past five years, Joramco has played an important role in our operations by fulfilling our MRO requirements,” said Mick Hills, senior vice president, Engineering and Maintenance at flydubai. “We look forward to seeing our partnership strengthen with this latest agreement as our fleet continues to grow.”
Dubai-based flydubai has created a network of more than 85 destinations and over the next decade the airline will see its fleet grow by up to 296 aircraft. It currently operates a single fleet-type of 58 Boeing 737 aircraft. The airline placed the largest single-aisle aircraft orders in the region at the 2013 and 2017 editions of the Dubai Airshow.
