StandardAero has signed amendments to both of its exclusive engine maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) agreements with GoJet Airlines for additional MRO support.
The amendments add 20 CF34-8 engines, for a total of 50 engines plus spares, in addition to 15 RE220 auxiliary power units (APUs), increasing the company’s number of GoJet APU MRO work to 25. All CF34 work will be conducted at StandardAero’s Winnipeg, Canada, facility with the RE220 APU work being performed at the company’s Maryville, TN, facility.
“[This] announcement is an acknowledgement of the confidence and satisfaction GoJet has in StandardAero,” commented senior vice-president, airlines & fleets, Ian Smart. “The quality of the work coming from our teams, the flexibility of our programmes, and the cost advantages we provide our customers is being recognised throughout the industry and demonstrated by our growth not only in our CF34 and RE220 businesses, but also by our migration into other large fan engines such as the CFM56. We’ve long enjoyed our partnership with GoJet and based on today’s announcement; anticipate that relationship to extend well into the future.”
The initial contract with GoJet for CF34 engine and RE220 APU MRO support was signed in 2005; both for 15-year terms.
