Fleet Support for Braathens

Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) has signed a three-year fleet support services contract with BAE Systems Regional Aircraft for the 12 Avro RJs it operates. The scope of the deal includes the renewal of a long-standing ‘JetSpares’ customised rotatable spares rate per flying hour support agreement, for which the airline was the launch customer back in 1996. The new contract covers 640 parts per aircraft over the 12-strong fleet (ten RJ100s and two RJ85s) and is for a minimum of 38,000 fleet flying hours across a three-year period. In addition, the two companies have signed a contract covering rate per flying hour for the Honeywell GTCP36-150M auxiliary power units (APUs) that are fitted to eight of the RJ100s. BRA has also extended its long-term ‘Tech 21’ agreement with BAE Systems under which the manufacturer provides priority technical support services via a dedicated engineer to ensure timely responses to technical issues.
