ST Engineering this week announced two new engine MRO contracts with airlines, underscoring its value proposition of providing flexible solutions to its airline partners.
The company will extended an existing one to an exclusive five-year contract with Alaska Airlines and provide heavy maintenance on the CFM56-7B engines of 14 Boeing 737-700 and 12 Boeing 737-900 aircraft. Services will be provided starting next year at its facilities in Singapore.
The second is another engine heavy maintenance contract awarded by an Asian airline. Under the agreement, ST Engineering will service CFM56-7B engines that will be redelivered over a 12-month period from mid-2022 to mid-2023. These services will be provided at the engine MRO facilities in Xiamen, China.
