ETIHAD SIGNS WITH TARMAC AND FAdeA bookmark

Etihad Airways Engineering has signed an MoU with TARMAC Aerosave, an industrial group specialising in aircraft maintenance, storage and recycling, and owned jointly by Airbus, Safran and Suez. The MoU paves the way for the two companies to identify and jointly pursue opportunities to develop, explore, support and extend Part 145 maintenance services and products to their customers from around the world.


Following the MoU, Etihad Airways Engineering and TARMAC Aerosave completed their first Airbus A350 C check in January for a leading Latin American airline at the TARMAC facility in Tarbes, France. An Etihad Airways Engineering team flew from Abu Dhabi to carry out and support the heavy maintenance check. This also provided an opportunity for Etihad Airways Engineering’s licensed engineers to complete hands-on Part 147 A350 training. The company is gearing up to carry out A350 maintenance checks in Abu Dhabi from March 2019.


The company has also signed a collaboration agreement with Argentina’s main aircraft manufacturer, Fabrica Argentina de Aviones (FAdeA), to serve MRO customers in South America. The agreement enables both companies to leverage their strengths and become significant players in the narrowbody aircraft maintenance market in South America. As part of the collaboration, Etihad Airways Engineering will support FAdeA in developing the processes and capabilities to maintain and modify aircraft and aircraft components.


The partnership will capitalise on the existing facilities and manpower of FAdeA, coupled with Etihad Airways Engineering’s MRO expertise, as well as its strong customer footprint in Latin America. Etihad Airways Engineering will be FAdeA’s preferred partner for Part 21J Engineering and Part 21G Production.


Following the signing of the multi-year agreement, seven Airbus A320 aircraft belonging to LAN Argentina were reconfigured at FAdeA facilities, and more projects are planned in the coming months.
