Safran Nacelles has signed an agreement with Interjet to provide repair services and spares pool resources for engine nacelles that equip Airbus A320neo-series jetliners operated by the Mexican airline.
The five-year agreement covers Interjet’s growing fleet of jetliners from the A320neo family, which are powered by CFM International’s LEAP-1A turbofan engines. Safran Nacelles’ repair services and spares resources are part of the company’s new NacelleLife support program.
“We’re proud to extend Safran Nacelles’ relationship with Interjet to the airline’s A320neo-series jetliners, which will benefit from the NacelleLife coverage,” said Oliver Savin, Safran Nacelles’ Vice President of Customer Support & Services. “It builds on the repair and maintenance contract we signed with this dynamic Mexican airline in 2013 for the nacelles on its Sukhoi Superjet 100 fleet.”
Interjet currently operates five A320neo family aircraft, with six additional A321neo jetliners to be received by the end of 2018.
“Safran Nacelles has provided excellent support for our Superjet 100s, and we look ahead with confidence in expanding our relationship to the A320neo – a jetliner that is vital to our airline’s future,” said José Luis Garza, Interjet’s CEO. “Choosing the right services partners is just as important as choosing the right aircraft, and Interjet is confident we once again have made the best selection with Safran Nacelles.”
