Pemco World Air Services has signed an agreement with JetBlue Airways to upgrade the seats on the carrier’s 110-strong Airbus A320 fleet and has had its existing contract to provide airframe heavy maintenance for the fleet extended.
All work is taking place at Pemco’s 150,000 sq ft facility in Tampa, Florida, where the MRO provider specialises in all levels of scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, including ‘A’ to ‘D; checks, interiors, avionics and structural modifications. The company’s structures capability includes durability and damage tolerance analysis, stress analysis, structural repair development, corrosion repair and fatigue analysis.
“We are excited about the opportunity to expand our partnership with JetBlue Airways and to contribute to their success as a major US airline,” remarked Pemco CEO Wake Smith. The company’s president Kevin Casey added, “JetBlue and Pemco’s Tampa base are a particularly good fit and we are delighted by JetBlue’s confidence in and commitment to Pemco. Our operations people work diligently to achieve superlative performance, and JetBlue’s endorsement as their top-tier supplier for 2010 heavy maintenance is gratifying.”
