Volotea awards SR Technics with a ten-year engine agreement

Posted 19 October 2016 · Add Comment

SR Technics has been awarded with a ten-year exclusive PbH (power by the hour) agreement from Volotea, the airline of mid and small‐sized European cities.

In addition to providing engine maintenance, repair and overhaul for the airline’s CFM56-5B fleet, SR Technics will offer in-service and on-wing support. All engine work will be completed at the MRO provider’s Zurich facilities.

The new agreement with SR Technics is part of the carrier’s re-fleeting plans. Volotea is currently flying a growing fleet of Airbus A319 with CFM56-5B engines, and is planning to rapidly expand this in the coming years. The quality, flexibility and competitive rates of the service package were clearly important to the airline’s decision to award SR Technics with the long-term engine contract. 

“We are very pleased to be awarded with this agreement from Volotea”, said Frank Walschot, COO at SR Technics. “Volotea has grown significantly in recent years, and while relying on our high-quality engine services, the airline can concentrate on expanding its route map and flying even more passengers. We look forward to building on our collaboration to support Volotea’s future growth.”

Román Pané, Volotea’s COO, added: “We are delighted to partner with SR Technics, which will ensure we get top-notch technical support for our expanding A319 fleet. Relying on such a strong partner will allow us to focus on our core business of transporting our passengers safely and on-time.”
