BAE Systems Regional Aircraft has secured a three-year Fleet Support Services contract with Swedish carrier Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) to cover 12 Avro RJs operated by the airline.
The contract includes the renewal of the long-standing JetSpares customised rotable spares rate-per-flying-hour support agreement, which BRA is the longest standing customer for, having been enrolled on this service since 1996.
The new agreement covers 640 parts per aircraft over the 12 aircraft fleet – 10 RJ100s, and two RRJ85s – and is for a minimum of 38,000 fleet flying hours across the three year period.
An agreement was also signed for rate-per-flying-hour coverage for the Honeywell GTCP36-150M Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) that is fitted to eight Avro RJ100s in the BRA fleet.
Working with an overhaul supplier, Regional Aircraft provides BRA with a guaranteed service level on the APUs for a fixed monthly cost over the three-year period.
BRA has also extended its long-term Tech 21 agreement with BAE Systems, the priority technical support service nominates a dedicated engineer to handle and to ensure timely responses to technical issues.
