Etihad Airways has signed agreements with Boeing Global Services for the provision of maintenance support on its fleet of Boeing 787s.
The agreements are part of the partnership between Etihad and Boeing signed in November 2019 at the Dubai Airshow.
Key to the agreements is a Component Services Program for more than 300 operational critical parts for Etihad’s 787 fleet; a landing gear exchange programme including Aircraft on Ground (AOG) coverage; as well as high value airframe components and digital products to optimise Etihad’s maintenance activities.
“Ensuring the highest standards in the Etihad Airway’s fleet is just one way we continue to set the standard for operational excellence globally,” said Mohammad Al Bulooki, Etihad Airways COO.
“By partnering with Boeing as the OEM of Etihad’s 787s, we ensure that the fleet receives the highest levels of maintenance support to increase reliability and efficiency. These agreements continue to demonstrate the strength of the Etihad Aviation Group’s partnership.”
Ted Colbert, president and CEO, Boeing Global Services, said: “We are delighted that Etihad, a market leader, has chosen to optimise its fleet reliability and efficiency by choosing Boeing’s Component Services Program, further strengthening our long-standing partnership. The Boeing team is ready to support Etihad’s world-class operations with our global scale, reach and OEM expertise.”
