Bombardier Aerospace has signed a five-year agreement with Japan Air Commuter to renew its Smart Parts programme coverage for the carrier's 11 Q400s.
The programme renewal is tailored to the airline's specific operational and performance needs and will continue to provide Japan Air Commuter with “competitive and predictable repair costs for key components for its Q400 turboprop fleet” until April 2018.
"The entire team is deeply engaged in ensuring that our Smart Parts programme meets Japan Air Commuter's exacting parts quality and performance standards, which are our core strengths as the OEM," commented Gary Martin, vice-president, sales, marketing & service programs, customer services, Bombardier Aerospace.
"By selecting Bombardier's new Smart Parts programme for our Q400 aircraft component support, we expect to benefit from its quality and service level," remarked Yasushi Tokuda, general manager, maintenance planning and administration, Japan Air Commuter. "Passengers boarding our fleet can count on next to no itinerary changes and on-time schedules."
