Asiana Airlines signs FHS components contract with Airbus for A330 fleet
South Korea’s Asiana Airlines has selected Airbus Flight Hour Services (FHS) to provide components support, securing the highest service level for daily A330 operations. This latest selection by Asiana Airlines re-affirms its confidence in Airbus’ Flight Hour Services, less than a year after signing an FHS contract for its A380s. The FHS Components agreement, which will run for 10 years, provides an extensive scope of A330 line replaceable units (LRUs), guaranteed spare parts availability through pool access service, on-site stock at customer main base and selected outstations, as well as repair service to Asiana Airlines. Asiana Airlines is a major Airbus customer. The carrier currently operates 33 single aisle A320 Family aircraft, 15 twin aisle widebody A330-300s and two double deck A380s. In addition, the carrier has outstanding orders for four more A380s and 30 all-new A350 XWB aircraft for future operation on international and long haul services.
