Goodrich has signed a nacelle services agreement with BA CityFlyer for support of the nacelles and thrust reversers in the airline’s fleet of Embraer 190s powered by GE CF34-10 engines.
The five-year Prime Solutions nacelle services agreement will be managed through Goodrich’s Prestwick Service Centre in Scotland, which will provide local support to the airline.
Paul Farsetta, vice-president and general manager of Aftermarket Services for Goodrich’s Aerostructures business, said the agreement is a vote of confidence in Goodrich services by BA CityFlyer. "This agreement is a good example of how another E-190 operator has recognised the value of securing long-term nacelle services with Goodrich. Our Prestwick service centre is conveniently located in the UK to provide cost and time savings to BA CityFlyer for their nacelle maintenance needs. Our nacelle maintenance, repair and overhaul network has seen consistent growth in providing services locally as more airlines realise the real benefits in time and cost savings, in the transportation of large nacelle components to the service provider."
Prime Solutions is a suite of maintenance services and asset/inventory management programmes that can be fully customised to meet any airline’s needs for nacelle maintenance.
