Tempe, Ariz. – November 14, 2013 – StandardAero has signed another exclusive APU maintenance agreement with Air Nostrum. The agreement is for a fleet of Honeywell GTCP36-150RJ auxiliary power units (APUs). Last month, StandardAero announced a similar agreement with Air Nostrum for 31 Honeywell RE220RJ APUs.
“Our ability to immediately secure additional follow-on MRO business from Air Nostrum not only reflects their confidence and satisfaction with our work, it serves as growing regional advocacy of StandardAero among European air carriers,” said Rob Cords, Senior Vice President, Airlines & Fleets, StandardAero.
All work will be performed in the U.S. at StandardAero’s Maryville, Tenn., facility; a one-stop shop that not only repairs the APU but all Line Replaceable Units (LRU’s) associated with the APU.
“This milestone represents the efforts of our entire team in Maryville and reinforces our solid position in the marketplace,” said Randy Mengel, APU Program Director, StandardAero. “The focus on continuous improvement and commitment to the customer drives the value we bring to our customers every day.”
