BAE Systems wins three-year JetSpares contract from Braathens Technical AB
BAE Systems Regional Aircraft has secured a three-year extension to its long-standing JetSpares contract with Braathens Technical AB of Sweden in support of 12 Avro RJ regional jetliners operated by Braathens subsidiary, Malmö Aviation. The contract has an option to run for a fourth year and will cover continued Avro RJ operations by Malmö Aviation until the delivery of new-generation replacement aircraft. Braathens Technical/Malmö Aviation is the longest-standing JetSpares customer of BAE Systems, having first entered the programme in 1999. Since then the JetSpares agreement has been renewed on many occasions and this latest renewal was won against competition from three other companies.
