Joramco, the Amman-based MRO and the engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE), is heading into the new season executing its first base maintenance agreement with Irish budget airline, Ryanair.
“We are looking forward to starting a new and productive season after the slowdown caused by the global situation, and our teams are eager to get back to what they do best,” said Jeff Wilkinson, Joramco’s CEO.
The agreement includes heavy checks on the airline’s Boeing 737 NG fleet. Ryanair booked two parallel lines at the Joramco facility during the winter season, initially set from November 2019 until June 2020.
The new line of checks started on 15 July 2020 and will continue through to March 2021 and consist of five 737 NGs, followed by seven A320s.
Wilkinson added: “We are honoured that Ryanair has entrusted Joramco with the maintenance of some of its fleet, and we’re proud of our team who have, despite the challenges posed by the coronavirus, dedicatedly provided first-class maintenance services that have met, and will continue to meet Ryanair’s high expectations.”
