Goodrich just announced a 10-year, nacelle services agreement with Air Arabia. The contract covers nacelles and thrust reversers for a fleet of more than 50 Airbus A320 aircraft powered by CFM56-5B engines and will be managed through Goodrich's Dubai campus in Jebel Ali, UAE. The site in Dubai will provide local support to the fast-growing low-cost carrier based in Sharjah, UAE.

According to Bob Gustafson, Vice President and General Manager of Aftermarket Services at Goodrich, "This agreement is a good example of an airline recognizing the value of securing long-term nacelle services with a locally-positioned nacelle maintenance, repair and overhaul facility.”
Goodrich’s Aerostructures business operates eight service centers worldwide.
Air Arabia is the Middle East and North Africa's first, and largest, low-cost carrier serving a wide range of destinations across the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, and South and Central Asia. Air Arabia operates from its hubs in Sharjah, UAE; Casablanca, Morocco; and Alexandria, Egypt.
