StandardAero signs new contracts with Mesa Airlines to support its fleet of APS2300 and RE220 APUs

StandardAero has signed two, new, five-year contracts with Mesa Airlines to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for the airline’s APS2300 and RE220 auxiliary power units (APUs).  With these new contracts, StandardAero now supports 100% of Mesa Airlines’ APUs.

Under the first contract, StandardAero will provide MRO services for the APS2300 APUs equipping a further 18 Embraer E175 regional aircraft operated by Mesa for United Airlines.  This new contract follows on from a previous 12-year APU support agreement covering 30 Mesa E175s signed in 2015.

The second contract covers support of the RE220 APUs which equip Mesa’s fleet of 84 Bombardier CRJ700/CRJ900 regional aircraft, operated for American Airlines and United Airlines.

StandardAero, an OEM-approved Authorized Repair Facility for both the APS2300 and RE220, will provide Mesa with customized MRO programs offering maximum support and flexibility to meet the airline’s specific operational needs.  Mesa’s APUs will be serviced at StandardAero’s Maryville, Tennessee facility.
