Satair Group and Flybe sign five-year battery contract

Satair Group UK and Flybe have signed a five-year contract under which Satair Group will assume responsibility for the supply of aircraft battery servicing and associated battery supply to the airline.
The contract, which will be carried out at Satair Group’s UK battery facility near London Heathrow Airport, will support Flybe’s mixed fleet of Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 turboprops and Embraer E175/195 regional jetliners, along with other aircraft types operated by Flybe under wet-lease arrangements across mainland Europe.
“This important contract is growing evidence of an airline trend to outsource non-core services to improve quality and service”, said Jon Ravenhall, Satair Group Managing Director Operations Repair Europe (UK). “The specific benefits to Flybe will be improved turnaround times, enhanced service levels, high quality standards and lower overall costs,” he added.
Flybe’s Engineering and Maintenance Ops Team adds: “Satair Group has established a strong and reliable reputation for their services within the industry. We look forward to working with them in maximising efficiencies in this key area of our business.”
