LONDON – Jetstar Asia this week announced a new three-year line and base maintenance service agreement and a multi-year component repair service agreement with ST Engineering to support the airline’s fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft.
ST Engineering has been providing line and base maintenance and engineering support to Singapore-based low-cost carrier, Jetstar Asia since 2013. Moving forward, line and base maintenance will now be complemented by ST Engineering’s component repair service.
Under the component repair services agreement, the MRO facility will provide Jetstar Asia with comprehensive repair management services through its in-house component repair and overhaul facilities and global repair network.
