Gulf Air inks key maintenance agreement
Manama, January 18, 2014
Bahrain's national airline Gulf Air has signed a three-year maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) agreement with Jordan-based JorAMCo, to meet the airline's heavy maintenance and 'C' check fleet requirements.
JorAMCo, a regional MRO facility based in Jordan, was awarded the contract by the national carrier following a successful bidding process through the Bahrain Tender Board.
The company will provide the airline with heavy maintenance and 'C' checks including C1, C2, C3 and C4 checks for its fleet of 26 aircraft - A330s, A320-ERs, A320s and A321s. All maintenance will be performed at its facilities at Queen Alia International Airport, Jordan.
Gulf Air performs its own aircraft maintenance, up to and including A-checks, utilising all the engineering resources available locally in Bahrain.
The airline also fully manages its Continued Airworthiness Management Organisation functions which include engineering support services, aircraft systems and propulsion engineering, technical planning, airworthiness review and maintenance of fleet technical records.-TradeArabia News Service
