Aero Norway will provide engine MRO services for Scandinavian Airlines’ (SAS) fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft.
The Norwegian MRO specialist signed a rolling agreement with the airline covering scheduled and unscheduled engine removals, maintenance, repair and overhaul for the carrier’s fleet of 67 B737-600/700/800 aircraft equipped with CFM56-7B engines.
Rune Veenstra, chief business officer at Aero Norway, said at MRO Europe in Amsterdam: “MROs, independent engine owners and leasing companies come to us because of the flexibility of workscope that we, as an independent organisation, can offer. This really helps their operational efficiency and the light work scopes, fast slot induction and quick turnaround will all deliver tangible benefits to SAS.”
He added that Aero Norway’s capability for on-site assistance was a key factor in the SAS decision with specific regional coverage able to be deployed in Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen. “Although Aero Norway has worked on several SAS engines in recent times, it is the flexibility we can offer and our commitment to induct unscheduled removals within specific timeframes that underpins this new agreement.”
Stavanger-based Aero Norway has been a CFM-approved facility for more than 25 years, and is multi-release FAA, EASA, TCCA, CAAC, GCAA and DGCA certified.
