Spirit AeroSystems has announced an agreement with Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Company (GAMECO) to be the Spirit authorized repair centre in Mainland China.
GAMECO was founded in 1989 as a joint venture of China Southern Airlines, Hutchison A/C Maintenance Investment and South China International A/C Engineering.
Initially, GAMECO will provide repair services to replace Boeing 757 RB211 inlet cowlings and A330 Trent inlet cowlings with plans to expand into nacelle work for Spirit customers.
Spirit has signed agreements with two freight carriers to place 757 inlet cowling work with GAMECO. In February, Spirit signed a contract with YTO Cargo Airlines (YTO), based in Hangzhou, China and in September 2021, Spirit signed a ten-year agreement with SF Airlines (SFA), a cargo carrier based in Shenzhen, China.
Spirit’s aftermarket business revenues have grown substantially from US$186 million in 2019 to US$239.9 million in 2021 and is targeting to grow the aftermarket business to US$500 million in revenue by 2025. (£1.00 = US$1.25 at time of publication).Email Post to a Friend
