Scottsdale, Ariz. – January 31, 2018 – StandardAero was recently awarded a four-year contract to support the Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) APS2300 auxiliary power unit (APU) maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for Russian based S7 Airlines’ fleet of Embraer E-Jet E170 aircraft. All services will be provided at StandardAero’s Maryville, TN, facility.
S7 is one of the largest Airlines in Russia, with a total fleet of 80 aircraft, and will be the biggest Embraer operator in the country as they expand their fleet of E-Jet E170s to 17 aircraft by the end of 2018.
“Being selected by S7 is another big win for StandardAero’s increasing footprint in the Russian airline marketplace,” said Peter Turner, President of StandardAero’s Airlines & Fleets division. “In December of last year, StandardAero was also awarded two multi-year APU contracts to support another Russian-based airline.”
“The decision to select StandardAero followed a competition with four proposals from independent MRO organizations. We are looking forward for our successful cooperation which will allow S7 to continue to grow its fleet and operate with the highest possible level of safety and reliability,” said Aleksey Shatko, Engineering Center Manager, S7 Airlines.
