StandardAero has signed a contract for its first auxiliary power units (APUs) programme in the Republic of China with Mandarin Airlines, which is based in Taiwan.
The company will perform customised maintenance, repair and overhaul services for the APS2300 APUs on Mandarin Airlines’ fleet of Embraer ERJ190 aircraft. The fleet will be serviced at StandardAero’s Maryville, Tennessee premises, which is an OEM-approved APS2300 APU Authorized Repair Facility.
In this capacity, StandardAero also offers access to OEM technical support and documentation, OEM warranty processing, access to rental bank assets, component repair and LRU capabilities and coordinated repair development with OEM authorisation.
The contract is expected to continue until 31 December, 2021, when Mandarin anticipates the retirement of its existing fleet.
“This new agreement is an important step in servicing Asia Pacific through a Taiwan based airline,” remarked Robert Cords, president of airlines and fleets at StandardAero. “We have been actively pursuing customers in this region and look forward to serving as a trusted partner for Mandarin Airlines.”
