Announced during MRO Middle East 2018, Egyptair has signed a contract with Safran Nacelles, who will deliver maintenance services on thrust reversers for the airline’s Airbus A330 jetliner fleet.

The A330s are powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines of which Safran serves as the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for Trent 700 thrust reversers.

Commenting on the agreement, Olivier Savin, Safran Nacelles’ EVP - Customer Support & Services, said: “We’re proud that Egyptair continues to place its trust in us by signing this service agreement.

“We are confident that our world-class support will meet Egyptair’s expectations, and are looking forward to other opportunities to extend our cooperation through Safran Nacelles’ lifecycle services solutions.”

As per the agreement, the service will include both scheduled soft time maintenance, as well as preventive primary maintenance performed at specific operator-chosen intervals. The latter can be adjusted to coincide with the airline’s operational schedule, while also facilitating coverage for unscheduled repair work and asset management.

Eng. Abou Taleb Tawfik, Chairman and CEO of Egyptair Maintenance & Engineering, commented: “We have chosen to establish trust-based working relationships with OEMs such as Safran Nacelles because of their ability to provide strong value, along with very high levels of services and support quality. We have been working with Safran companies for more than two decades, and by signing this agreement, we are pleased to continue reinforcing our collaboration with Safran Nacelles.”
