Safran Aircraft Engine Services Brussels and Brussels Airport have signed a long-term partnership agreement for the construction of a new-generation building at Brucargo North, enabling the aircraft engine manufacturer to develop its new maintenance activities.
A subsidiary of Safran Aircraft Engines, a leading commercial and military aircraft engine manufacturer, Safran Aircraft Engine Services Brussels has been based at Brussels Airport for 23 years where about 200 staff ensure the maintenance and repair of aircraft engines, in particular the CFM56 engine. Safran Aircraft Engine Services Brussels will now specialize in the maintenance of the latest-generation LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines, from under-wing inspection to partial disassembly as part of Safran Aircraft Engines’ worldwide MRO network. These ‘Line & Site Operations’ allow for optimized engine availability and their rapid return to operation for the benefit of airline customers.
At Brucargo, the logistics zone of Brussels Airport, over 100 companies are active. Together, they employ over 5,000 staff. Brucargo North, which will soon welcome Safran Aircraft Engine Services Brussels, is about to be totally re-developed to exclusively accommodate aeronautical maintenance operations.Email Post to a Friend
