ST Aerospace seals landing gear MRO contract with SAS

Singapore Technologies Aerospace (ST Aerospace) has sealed an eight-year contract worth approximately US$25m (approximately S$35m) with one of Scandinavia’s largest airlines Scandinavian Airlines (SAS).

Under this agreement, ST Aerospace will provide a comprehensive range of landing gear repair, overhaul and exchange services for SAS’ fleet of Boeing 737-600/700/800 and Bombardier CRJ900 aircraft.

“ST Aerospace has been supporting the landing gears for our Boeing 737NG fleet for a number of years,” said Mr Knut Dissen, Nominated Post Holder, Continuing Airworthiness of SAS. “Based on our previous experience of their quality work and high service levels, and their close proximity to our main bases at Copenhagen and Stockholm airports, SAS is happy to extend our business relationship with ST Aerospace.”

This contract extends an existing agreement covering landing gears maintenance for SAS’ fleet of Boeing 737NG aircraft, which ST Aerospace has been supporting since 2005. This extended agreement reinforces the long-standing partnership between ST Aerospace and SAS, which started a decade ago when ST Aerospace first provided landing gear repair and overhaul services to the SAS’ fleet of MD-80 aircraft which was later replaced by Boeing 737NG. Over the years, ST Aerospace also provided engine maintenance support for SAS’ CFM56 family of engines, and component support for SAS’ fleet of Boeing 737CG, 737NG, MD-80, Airbus A320, A330, A340 and Bombardier Q400.

“We are honoured to be selected once again by SAS to support their landing gears,” said Goh Poh Loh, Executive Vice President, Component Total Support of ST Aerospace. “We value the trust and confidence built upon this partnership over the past ten years, and we will continue to deliver long-term value for SAS as we support its growing operations.”
