SR Technics will provide its Integrated Component Support (ICS) service for Aeromexico’s fleet of 19 Boeing 787s, launching the maintenance provider’s aftermarket services for the model.
Under the 10-year deal, SR Technics will provide entry-into-service support, spares pool access and engineering services. Repair cycle management, which allows the carrier to hand over unserviceable parts and have SR Technics handle everything from providing new parts to refurbishing old ones, also is included.
Sanad Aero Solutions is providing Aeromexico with financing support for the deal.
The contract puts SR Technics on an already crowded 787 support map. Other MRO providers with 787 component deals in hand include AFI KLM E&M, AJ Walter, and Lufthansa Technik.
“Our team has made significant investments into this new and comprehensive ICS platform and we are delighted to see it validated through this cornerstone contract,” says Troy Lambeth, CEO of Sanad.
Both SR Technics and Sanad are part of the Mubadala Aerospace Group.
SR Technics’ ICS program supports about 750 aircraft flown by 40 operators. ICS customers have access to components both at designated bases and through common inventory pools in Abu Dhabi, London, Miami, and Zurich.
Prior to the 787’s grounding, Aeromexico was slated to put its first 787 into service in late summer. The carrier now plans to start receiving 787s sometime in the fourth quarter.
While the deal is the first ICS agreement between SR Technics and Aeromexico, they are already business partners. SR Technics has been supporting Aeromexico’s Pratt & Whitney PW4000s since the early 1990s.
