UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corporation, has been selected by easyJet to supply the wheels, carbon brakes and MRO support for the 68 new Airbus A320ceo aircraft being added to its fleet.
UTC Aerospace Systems has been the wheel and brake supplier to easyJet since its A320 aircraft entered service. The company will provide the equipment through its landing systems facility in Troy, Ohio.
MRO services will be performed at the UTC Aerospace's Hatfield, UK, location in close proximity to easyJet's home base.
“We are very pleased to continue our longstanding relationship with UTC Aerospace Systems who has supported our fleet since 200,” commented Ian Davies, easyJet’s head of engineering and maintenance. “We look forward to optimizing our maintenance and reliability with this equipment.”
Jim Wharton, president of landing systems at UTC Aerospace, added, “This selection demonstrates easyJet's confidence in our track record of providing quality products and services with the lowest total cost of ownership.”
