Safran Nacelles signed today a 10-year service contract with Viva Air Colombia for the nacelles of their growing fleet of A320neo aircraft powered by CFM International LEAP-1A engines.

Viva Air Colombia will have access to Safran Nacelles’ global stock of spare engine nacelles that equip the airline’s growing fleet of Airbus A320neo family jetliners. The Colombian airline will also benefit from OEM guaranteed maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) solutions at repair stations.

“We are pleased to support Viva Air Colombia in its A320neo maintenance operations” commented Alain Berger, Safran Executive Vice President – Customer Support & Services. “They can count on Safran Nacelles teams, particularly those at the Indianapolis, USA repair shop, who are fully mobilized to support Viva Air Colombia on a daily basis.”

Jhon Luna, Director of Maintenance & Engineering: “Our young A320neo fleet needs all the support and expertise of an OEM like Safran Nacelles to keep our aircraft in operation with the highest level of quality and to carry out the necessary repairs in the shortest possible time.”

Safran Nacelles also announced the signing of a six-year contract renewal with Hawaiian Airlines to service the thrust reversers on the carrier’s 24 Airbus A330ceo aircraft.

They will continue to support Hawaiian at its Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) shops located in The U.S.A. and France during scheduled maintenance or one-time repairs during

unscheduled maintenance. Safran Nacelles also provides access to a pool of thrust reversers.

Commitment to safety and reliability

“Since 2013, Safran Nacelles has been a trusted partner that shares our commitment to safety and reliability. We expect Safran Nacelles to continue to provide exceptional support for our A330 fleet,” said Jim Landers, Senior Vice President, Technical Operations, Hawaiian Airlines.
