BAE Systems Regional Aircraft has secured a two-year extension to its long-standing JetSpares contract with Braathens Regional Airlines in support of the airline’s fleet of 12 Avro RJ regional jetliners.
The Swedish-based airline is the longest-standing JetSpares customer of BAE Systems having first entered the programme in April 1996. At that time, the programme covered nearly 600 parts across 10 aircraft.
Since then the JetSpares agreement has been renewed on many occasions and the new agreement now covers 621 parts over the 12 aircraft fleet, which consists of 10 Avro RJ100s and two RJ85s.
JetSpares is a customised rotable spares support rate-per- flying-hour support agreement designed to allow and airline to focus on its flight operations while BAE Systems Regional Aircraft takes care of spares inventory, logistics and repairs.
Braathens Regional Airlines provides a comprehensive schedule of Swedish domestic services from its hub at Stockholm’s downtown Bromma airport to many destinations of which Malmo, Gothenburg and Umea are served by the RJ100. The airline also operates charter services to more than 60 destinations across Europe and offers ACMI services with its two RJ85s.Date: March 7, 2017
