Volvo Aero signs important contracts for engine maintenance


Volvo Aero has signed a contract for maintenance of engines for Norwegian Wideroe’s fleet of Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft, PW121 and PW123 engines. The contract covers six years and is worth around 25 MUSD.
Wideroe, a SAS subsidiary, is the biggest regional operator in Scandinavia. The company operates Europe’s largest Dash 8 fleet, 29 aircraft, to various destinations in Scandinavia. Shop visits will gradually increase to about 20 per year for the three last years of the contract. The contract was signed at the head office of Widerøe where Per-Arne Watle, CEO of Widerøe expressed his satisfaction that an agreement was reached with Volvo Aero and he looked forward to a fruitful partnership between the companies.

“We are happy to have been able to reach this agreement in spite of tough competition and are looking forward to supporting Widerøe with a smooth operation and keeping their engines on wing, something we have as the top priority for all our customers”, says Göran Nordén, Vice President, Marketing & Sales Engine Services at Volvo Aero in Trollhättan.

Volvo Aero has also signed a new five year maintenance agreement with Skywest Airlines in Perth, Australia

The agreement covers maintenance and technical support of PW125B turboprop engines for Fokker 50 aircraft. Volvo Aero won the business, estimated to be worth 7 million USD, in the face of tough competition from other maintenance providers.

Skywest Airlines operates seven Fokker 50 aircraft and plan to increase their fleet in the near future. It is therefore especially pleasing to have this agreement in place which underlines the confidence Skywest has gained in Volvo Aero during recent years. Skywest are particularly impressed with Volvo Aero’s flexibility and ability to adapt individual workscopes to customer requirements.
