Royal Jordanian Airlines has chosen Goodrich for five years worth of nacelle services in a decision that could be described as "locavorian." The Prime Solutions agreement covers maintenance and support of nacelles and thrust reversers for a fleet of V2500-powered Airbus A320s, CF34-10E-powered Embraer 195s, and CFM56-5C-powered Airbus A340s. The agreement will be managed through Goodrich's Dubai campus in Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates, which will provide regional support.
Bob Gustafson, Goodrich Aerostructures Vice President and General Manager of Aftermarket Services said, "This agreement demonstrates the breadth of services we offer on different aircraft types that are in different stages of their lifecycles. From the newer E195 airplanes to the more mature A320s and the out-of-production CFM56-5C nacelles on the A340-200, Goodrich is committed to offering world-class nacelle maintenance services on all of these programs."
Royal Jordanian president and CEO Hussein Dabbas added, "We are pleased to put this Prime Solutions agreement into place and that the work will be performed at the Goodrich Dubai campus, which is close to the Royal Jordanian base in Amman, Jordan.”
