Sanad expands customer base in Eastern Europe

ABU DHABI, June 19, 2019

Abu Dhabi-based Sanad Aerotech, a top maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider, has expanded its customer network in Eastern Europe, signing two maintenance agreements with Russian Nordwind and Bulgarian BH Air.

The partnership agreements come after Sanad Aerotech and Rolls-Royce announced a landmark $6.5 billion engine maintenance agreement including component repair to operators globally over a nine-year period and signify Sanad Aerotech’s collaboration with leading operators in Eastern Europe for the first time, reported Emirates news agency Wam.

Nordwind is Russia’s eighth largest operator, flying scheduled and chartered flight to 85 destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America. This agreement sees Sanad Aerotech overhauling up to 14 IAE V2500 engines from now until 2022. It is the Abu Dhabi-MRO’s first and only such agreement for V2500 engines with a Russian operator.

The Bulgarian charter airline BH Air primarily operates flights between northern and western Europe and Bulgaria. Sanad Aerotech will overhaul 5 IAE V2500 engines for the operator throughout 2019.

Sanad Aerotech CEO Mansoor Janahi said: "We’re thrilled to increase our global footprint into the Eastern European region, expanding our work with leading operators with solid growth projections. These deals represent confidence in our quality, reliability and globally competitive services that we offer from Abu Dhabi."

Sanad Aerotech is an independent service provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services for IAE customers around the world, providing its services to more than 300 V2500 engines since 2014 with year on year growth of over 20 percent. The V2500 engine on the popular Airbus A320 aircraft has sold over 7,000 engines worldwide and is in service with leading airlines in every corner of the globe.
