Primera Air signs global 737 MAX and 737 NG fleet care agreement

Primera Air has signed a Boeing Global Fleet Care agreement for its 737 MAX and Next-Generation 737 fleets during a signing ceremony at the Farnborough International Airshow. Under the contract, Boeing will provide engineering services, material services and line and heavy maintenance execution services.

“Boeing Global Fleet Care will be an integral part of our success story by providing Primera Air’s fleet maintenance operations as we expand our network of flights,” said Andri M. Ingolfsson, President & CEO, Primera Travel Group. “We’re proud to expand our growing relationship with Boeing.”

Primera Air, headquartered in Riga, Latvia, has a fleet of nine Next-Generation 737s. In January 2017, Boeing and Primera Air announced an order for up to 20 737 MAX 9s. The 737 MAX 9 will form the backbone of the airline’s future as it seeks to launch flights between Europe and North America.

“With this agreement, Primera Air will fly the best-in-class airplanes and have the best maintenance support in the industry. This is a prime example of Boeing’s unmatched ability to offer tailored and integrated solutions for our commercial customers,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales & Marketing for The Boeing Company. “We are excited to expand our partnership with Primera Air and we look forward to working alongside them to help them continue providing excellent air travel services.”
