AMAC sign contract for Sky Prime's Airbus A340 aircraft

Posted 27 January 2017 · Add Comment

Sky Prime has appointed AMAC to perform major modifications on a privately-owned A340 in Q2, 2017.

The contract, which includes major modifications such as cabin re-configuration and refurbishment and the re-design of the cabin, was signed during the MEBAA Show, which took place from the 6th to the 8th of December in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Beside the cabin re-configuration, AMAC will also perform structural modifications on the Airbus A340 aircraft: A KA-Band system that is designed to enable broadband class data connectivity as well as a Live TV system will be installed. The STCs for the KA-Band system and the Live TV are developed by AMAC’s engineering department. Sky Prime’s A340 will also undergo a complete external paint programme at AMAC’s partner facility for painting.

“Access to ultra-high speed, KA Band and high speed Live TV is consistent and reliable, which is crucial for private aviation firms. VIP business aviation passengers demand connectivity and comfort whenever they fly and need their online services to work as seamlessly in the air as they do on the ground.” said Kadri Muhiddin, Group Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, AMAC Aerospace. “AMAC has worked closely with Sky Prime, supporting its fleet and operations through our aftermarket and technical services, and we are pleased to extend this support to their next-generation aircraft offering full connectivity.”

New contracts for AMAC 

Four new maintenance contracts on small and mid-size business jets have been awarded to AMAC’s headquarters in Basel, Switzerland.

A contract with an Airbus A319 has been signed by AMAC. The aircraft will undergo a registration change and owner transfer process in Basel, Switzerland. AMAC Aerospace’s maintenance and logistics organization will prepare all due documents to fulfill the registration change requirements and will release an engineering order for a new exterior paint livery.

AMAC will also perform an annual inspection on a privately owned BBJ aircraft as well as multiple C-Checks and minor cabin modifications on another Boeing BBJ aircraft. 

A 60 months check package on a Bombardier Global Express aircraft will be performed by AMAC in January, 2017.

“It is a pleasure that beside new maintenance contracts on narrow bodies, we have also the opportunity to showcase our know-how and expertise on a Global Express aircraft, which demonstrates our willing to strengthen our position on the Bombardier market. We are proud to be recognized in this way by our esteemed clientele.” Bernd Schramm, Group Chief Operating Officer of AMAC Aerospace.
