Boeing signs agreement with Royal Jordanian to offer parts service to 787 Dreamliners

Boeing has signed a ten-year agreement with Royal Jordanian Airlines, under which the aircraft manufacturing company will supply Royal Jordanian 787 Dreamliners with a pool of high-value, mission-critical parts, enabling the airline to greatly reduce their inventory management costs while improving component availability. Boeing will support Royal Jordanian’s 787 Dreamliners with Boeing’s Rotable Exchange Program.

A rotable part is designed to be repeatedly and economically restored to a fully serviceable condition. Under the Rotable Exchange Program, Boeing establishes and maintains a pool of parts, selected to fit each customer’s fleet needs. The customer contacts Boeing for quick replacement of program-covered parts, which are shipped within a timeframe determined by the airline, based on their criticality. Boeing handles the repair, upgrade or warranty service when the customer returns the unserviceable part, a release states.

“With Boeing’s Rotable Exchange Program, we are gaining a means of ensuring smooth introduction of our 787s while controlling costs, minimising component maintenance time and optimising fleet performance,” said Imadedeen Farahid, Head of Engineering and Maintenance, Royal Jordanian Airlines.

“We are eager to run the state-of-the-art 787, which will open new heights to us. In particular, this induction to the fleet will enhance the economics of operations and boost satisfaction of our passengers, helping us serve the RJ vision to always be the airline of choice,” Farahid added.

Rick Anderson, Vice President, Sales, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, said, “Boeing’s Rotable Exchange Program is a simple way for airlines to reduce the total cost of airplane ownership, giving them a competitive advantage in their markets. We look forward to supporting Royal Jordanian’s ongoing growth and expansion with this industry-leading service. We greatly value our relationship with such a deeply rooted, leading and reputable airline in the Middle East.”

By providing coverage for parts typically priced in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, the Rotable Exchange Program provides considerable administration, depreciation and warehousing savings for airlines while reducing their inventory purchase and maintenance costs over the lifetime of the contract.
