AAR and Air Canada have signed a 10-year agreement to provide airframe maintenance for the airline’s Airbus narrowbody fleet of A319, A320 and A321 aircraft, as well as a new five-year agreement for Air Canada’s Embraer E-190 fleet. AAR will perform the work at its MRO facility at Trois-Rivières Airport in Quebec, previously known as Premier Aviation. The work to be performed on Air Canada’s fleet of 125 narrowbody aircraft will require approximately 350 aircraft mechanics at the facility. The total value of the contract over its term is estimated to be approximately C$500 million (£300 million).


This was closely followed by a five-year agreement to provide airframe maintenance for the airline’s fleet of 34 Boeing 767 at AAR’s Miami MRO facility. The contract will commence later this year and ramp up over three months.


HAECO Hong Kong has been selected by Finnair to perform the airline’s first C check on its Airbus A350 fleet. The maintenance check will commence in 4Q17.


Monarch Aircraft Engineering Limited has signed a base maintenance agreement with Virgin Atlantic to carry out C1 checks for its Boeing 787-9 fleet between 2017 and 2021. All the maintenance work will be carried out at its facility at Birmingham Airport and is due to commence at the end of September 2017.


RUAG Aviation in Bern, Switzerland, has completed phase four and phase six heavy maintenance checks on a Dornier 328 within the highly competitive turnaround of just four weeks. The work was carried out for ExecuJet South Africa on behalf of its customer, the Botswana Defence Force. The inspection event was optimised to include landing gear refurbishment at the RUAG in-house component shop in nearby Interlaken, including a loaner landing gear set, and SB issues.
