SR Technics has been awarded with a 10-year exclusive power-by-the-hour (PBH) type agreement from Volotea.
In addition to providing engine maintenance, repair and overhaul for the airline’s CFM56-5B engines on its Airbus A319 fleet, SR Technics will offer in-service and on-wing support. All engine work will be completed at the MRO provider’s Zurich facilities.
The new agreement is part of the carrier’s re-fleeting plans as it expands its fleet in the coming years. “We are delighted to partner with SR Technics, which will ensure we get top-notch technical support for our expanding A319 fleet. Relying on such a strong partner will allow us to focus on our core business of transporting our passengers safely and on-time,” remarked Román Pané, Volotea’s COO.
“We are very pleased to be awarded with this agreement from Volotea,” added Frank Walschot, COO at SR Technics. “Volotea has grown significantly in recent years, and while relying on our high-quality engine services, the airline can concentrate on expanding its route map and flying even more passengers. We look forward to building on our collaboration to support Volotea’s future growth.”
