Inflite MRO-Services, part of the Inflite Group, has secured a new, long-term contract with Spairliners GmbH, the Lufthansa Technik/Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance JV business, to handle component repair work on the Embraer E-Jet 170 and 190 aircraft. The contract was signed during the MRO Europe Show in London.
When work commences in 2020, Inflite will be supporting a wide range of E-Jet rotable components for Spairliners’ E-Jet customers, including difficult to transport and hazardous items. Work will be carried out at its dedicated components workshops at London Southend Airport.
Inflite MRO Services has been increasingly active supporting E-Jet family components, supporting several customers ad hoc, including Flybe. It is a major shift for the business, which built its reputation as a specialist BAe 146 support center. With more BAe 146s moving overseas, Inflite has moved into more modern types, including the Airbus A320 and B737.Email Post to a Friend
