SR Technics signs contracts with Aeroflot, Aigle Azur and Finnair
SR Technics, part of the Mubadala Aerospace MRO network, has signed a contract with Aeroflot to install the Airbus ALNA V2 (AirLine Network Architecture) on three of the airline’s Airbus A330-200 aircraft. The In-flight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFEC) system installation will be carried out alongside scheduled C-Checks, thus optimizing aircraft down time and maximizing Aeroflot’s utilization of the aircraft. Under the agreement the work will be completed in the fall of 2013, with all modification and maintenance activities being completed out of SR Technics’ headquarters in Zurich. The ALNA V2 system is the first line fit connectivity solution to be developed by an aircraft manufacturer. The platform allows passengers to use their own wireless communication devices such as mobile or smart phones and laptops on board, in the same way they would use them on the ground.
Furthermore, SR Technics has signed a contract with French Airline Aigle Azur, based in Orly, to provide C-checks on two Airbus A319 aircraft. The aircraft will be inducted in November and December of this year, and the work will be completed out of SR Technics narrowbody Center for Excellence in Malta.
SR Technics and Finnair are deepening their cooperation and have signed an extension to the existing agreement for Integrated Component Services (ICS) for the airline’s five new Airbus A321 aircraft until 2022. The new contract builds on the close cooperation with Finnair for Component Services for its Airbus andEmbraer fleets and Engine Services for its A320 and A340 fleets. Most recently, the two companies signed a contract for heavy maintenance visits on two of the airline’s A320 aircraft.
