We are delighted to be chosen by Spairliners to support their global component support solutions. With decades of repairs expertise, the team at Spairliners can count on our support for this range of critical components. At Fokker Services, we are continuously expanding our MRO capabilities, especially for Embraer aircraft, and we look forward to offering our strong repair solutions to Spairliners in the years to come.”
Benoît Rollier, Managing Director and CFO of Spairliners, added: “We are especially happy to further strengthen our supplier network with a partner that has established expertise and repair facilities both in Europe and in the United States. Our collaboration with Fokker Services will help us to further increase the efficiency of our operations through better turn-around times and higher availability. Combined with our unique expertise in supply chain, engineering, and smart inventory management this will enable us to provide the best services to our customers, in particular as we are looking forward to expand in the Americas.”
All units will be repaired in-house at Fokker Services’ facilities in the Netherlands and the United States.
