Bombardier Commercial Aircraft has signed an eight-year Smart Parts agreement with Air Philippines Corporation, operator of Philippine Airlines affiliate airline PAL Express, to provide component management for the airline’s 12 new dual-class Q400 aircraft. The agreement involves comprehensive component MRO services, access to a strategically located spare parts exchange pool, and on-site inventories based at the airline’s main hubs of operation in the Philippines. Philippine Airlines signed a firm order for five Q400 aircraft in December 2016 and exercised its purchase rights for another seven turboprops during the 2017 Paris International Air Show.


Embraer has extended Flight Hour Pool Program agreements until 2021 with Austral Líneas Aéreas and Saratov Airlines. The agreement with Austral, Aerolíneas Argentina’s domestic airline, covers the carrier’s fleet of 26 E190 aircraft and includes both the Pool Program and repair management services for the carrier’s E-Jets, which includes material services engineering, advanced component exchanges from Embraer’s spare parts warehouse in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and a dedicated logistics channel to deliver parts to the Aerolíneas Argentinas cargo facility in Miami. Russian operator Saratov Airlines has E195s and will also include two additional leased aircraft to be delivered in early 2018.


Honeywell International has signed a new agreement with Aerotechnic in South Africa to provide full avionics and mechanical spares support and retrofit, modification and upgrade solutions for Airbus and Boeing aircraft in Africa. With access to Honeywell International world-class avionics and mechanical solutions, Aerotechnic will provide airlines with improved local support, boosting efficiency with faster turnaround on maintenance that ultimately reduces flight delays and cancellations for passengers while saving costs for operators each year.


João Carlos Pina, Director, Aerotechnic, says: “There is a growing demand from operators in the African region for local service centres to provide upgrades and safety services. With this agreement, Aerotechnic can offer airlines more reliable, immediate and hands-on support. By providing solutions like ADS-B locally, we can better serve operators and transform fleets, making them more valuable and productive while improving flight safety through better awareness.”


Liebherr-Aerospace and Embraer have signed a Maintenance Services Agreement covering ERJ 135 and ERJ 145 components as well as nose landing gear overhaul for ERJ 135, ERJ 145 and Legacy 600 aircraft. The support services will be performed by Liebherr-Aerospace’s OEM and service centres in Lindenberg, Germany (landing gear, flight control systems and gears and gearboxes) and in Toulouse (air management systems).
