Boeing and Primera Air announced a Boeing Global Fleet Care agreement for the carrier’s 737 MAX and Next-Generation 737 fleets during a signing ceremony on the second day of the Farnborough International Airshow. As per the deal, Boeing will provide engineering services, material services and line and heavy maintenance execution services.
“Boeing Global Fleet Care will be an integral part of our success story by providing Primera Air’s fleet maintenance operations as we expand our network of flights,” said Andri M. Ingolfsson, President & CEO, Primera Travel Group. “We’re proud to expand our growing relationship with Boeing.”
Primera Air has a fleet of nine Next-Generation 737s. In January 2017, Boeing and Primera Air announced an order for up to 20 737 MAX 9s. The 737 MAX 9 will form the backbone of the carrier’s future as it seeks to launch flights between Europe and North America.

This is a prime example of Boeing’s unmatched ability to offer tailored and integrated solutions for our commercial customers,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales & Marketing for The Boeing Company.

It helps Boeing to offer maintenance and reliability programs for the next generation 737, 737 MAX, 747-8, 777 and 787 Dreamliner.
