Avianca awards A330 components repair to Barfield
Avianca has selected Barfield, a Sabena technics company, as its provider for the repair of specific components for its Airbus A330 fleet. This A330 program comes in addition to the existing 10-year repair agreement covering Avianca’s A320 fleet. Within this additional scope, Barfield will perform test, repair and overhaul of rotable components such as avionics, hydraulics, air conditioned and instruments for the Avianca fleet of eight A330 aircraft. During the next couple of years, the fleet shall reach ten aircraft. This collaboration is not the first one between the airline and Sabena technics’ American subsidiary. In 2010, Avianca and TACA Airlines selected Barfield as its maintenance partner for its A320 fleet. Barfield, in order to improve its proximity of service, soon opened a facility in Bogota, Colombia, to support Avianca and TACA Airlines.
