Flag carrier Royal Jordanian has recently entrusted Hawker Pacific Aerospace, a subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik AG, with landing gear services for the airline’s regional aircraft fleet of Embraer E-Jets.
The three-year contract encompasses landing gear overhauls for one Embraer E-195 and two E-175s. In addition, Hawker Pacific will support Royal Jordanian with landing gear spares on a loan- and exchange-basis. The first overhaul of the aircraft’s landing gears in Hawker Pacific’s Sun Valley facility is scheduled for November 2019.
Lufthansa Technik already has a decades-long business relationship with Royal Jordanian that in addition to the new contract encompasses both landing gear services as well as a Total Component Support (TCS) for the airline’s Airbus A320 fleet.
Royal Jordanian president/CEO Stefan Pichler said: “We are glad to partner with Hawker Pacific being a leading landing gear repair and overhaul provider. We believe that their high-quality standards and timely services will support Royal Jordanian’s continued keenness to maintain our aircraft in their best performance. This agreement will further enhance our historical cooperation with Lufthansa Technik.”
Bernd Freckmann, chief executive officer of Hawker Pacific Aerospace, added that the company “is proud to serve Royal Jordanian with Embraer landing gear overhaul services, a product where Hawker Pacific Aerospace was and is able to demonstrate great experience and quality. We are dedicated to provide Royal Jordanian with the high level of quality they have experienced within the Lufthansa Technik Group.”
Hawker Pacific Aerospace, based in California, USA, has an on-site Designated Engineering Representative (DER), and consistently develops innovative repair methods to avoid scrapping material. As a full landing gear solutions provider, the company also offers technical support, on-wing support, and various training. – TradeArabia News Service
