Aero Norway AS, a Norwegian engine MRO service provider, has signed a rolling GTA with repair agreement with Scandinavian Airlines (SAS).
As per the agreement, the MRO specialist will oversee both scheduled and unscheduled engine removals and MRO services for the carrier’s fleet of 67 Boeing 737 600/700/800 aircraft, which are equipped with CFM56-7B engines.
Rune Veenstra, chief business at Aero Norway, commented: “Aero Norway’s capability for on-site assistance was a key factor in the SAS decision with specific regional coverage able to be deployed in Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen.
“Although Aero Norway has worked on several SAS engines in recent times, it is the flexibility we can offer and our commitment to induct unscheduled removals within specific timeframes that underpins this new agreement.”
Certified by a number of operational standards as put forth by the FAA, EASA, TCCA, CAAC, GCAA and DGCA, Aero Norway has been a CFM-approved facility for the last 25 years.
The company has specialised on maintenance work for the CFM56-5B engine, a popular choice amongst owners of the Airbus A320 aircraft. Aero Norway has also focused heavily on the CFM56-7B engine, which is exclusively used on the Boeing 737 Next Generation.
