Asiana Airlines and SR Technics have signed an exclusive five-year engine maintenance contract for the airline’s PW4000 engines on its A330-300 fleet.
The contract is effective 1 September 2019, and the MRO’s Engine Services business unit will perform more than 50 Pratt & Whitney PW4000 shop visits for their A330-300 fleet over the period.
“We are very pleased that Asiana Airlines has entrusted us to provide engine services for an important part of its fleet,” said Michael Sattler, chief commercial officer at SR Technics. “Our work for this major South Korean carrier sets a flag in East Asia and strengthens our presence in the competitive aviation industry.”
“We have chosen SR Technics to overhaul our PW4000 engines because we are convinced that SR Technics is the best choice for us to support our A330 fleet,” said Sang-Woo Noh, senior vice-president of purchasing at Asiana Airlines.
All work will be performed at the SR Technics engine shop in Zurich.
