June 12, 2017 – Zurich, Switzerland: SR Technics, a world leading MRO service provider is pleased to announce the signing of an exclusive agreement to provide inspection and repair services for easyJet’s thrust reversers used in their Airbus fleet. The work for the new three-year contract will be done at the SR Technics facility at Zurich Airport.
The quality, reliability and competitiveness that have made SR Technics an industry leader were all important factors in easyJet’s decision to further expand its collaboration with the company. SR Technics has extensive experience supporting CFM56-5B thrust reversers and in-house repair capabilities to provide the low-cost carrier with the best value.
Gary Smith, easyJet’s Head of Engineering commented: “The ability of SR Technics to meet easyJet’s growing fleet maintenance requirements has already been proven with their support of our line and base maintenance. The overhaul of our A320CEO family thrust reversers represents another significant step forward in our relationship with SR Technics. As easyJet grows, we are pleased to share the strength of our business with maintenance providers capable of meeting the highest quality and safety standards, and cost focus of easyJet.”
SR Technics Chief Operating Officer Jean-Marc Lenz said: “We are very pleased to expand our cooperation with easyJet, building on our successful line and base maintenance agreements in the UK, Malta and Switzerland. easyJet is a highly valued customer of SR Technics, and we look forward to working closely together to strengthen our partnership.”
Last year SR Technics signed a five-year extension on an existing maintenance cooperation agreement with easyJet in Malta, and the British airliner also extended several line maintenance agreements with SR Technics for a range of stations in the UK and Switzerland.
