Rolls-Royce plc and HAECO Group, a global leader in aircraft engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), have announced that HAECO will become Rolls-Royce’s principal provider of global on-wing and in-field services for large civil aeroengines.

This will enable Rolls-Royce to further enhance their customer experience by providing airlines with greater capacity and capability through HAECO’s global network.

As part of this agreement, HAECO will expand its network into London and the Middle East, including the operation of a London Heathrow based Service Centre, to provide round-the-clock specialist maintenance and support for aeroengines.

Lee McConnellogue, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President – Services Operations, Civil Aerospace, said: “We welcome this agreement with HAECO. It will allow us to provide our customers with greater on-wing services support across our global network at a time when many airlines are seeing their fleets return to more robust levels of activity. Partnerships such as these help us help our customers as they recover from the impact of Covid and continue to grow into the future.”

Angus Barclay, HAECO Group Director Components & Engine Services, said: “This agreement builds upon the long-standing, close relationship between Rolls-Royce and HAECO for engine MRO services. We look forward to supporting Rolls-Royce and their customers with our global on-wing and in-field services."
