Corsair Signs an exclusive NacelleLife™ service contract with Safran for all its Airbus A330neo nacelles
Gonfreville l’Orcher, April 29th 2021
Safran Nacelles has signed a 12-year NacelleLife™ service contract with Corsair for the nacelles of its 5 Airbus A330neo. With this contract, Safran Nacelles commits to the repair of the nacelles and the general service of the thrust reverser at the time of their programmed removals with the support of its network of experts for on-site nacelle inspections and its Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) centres.
Alain Berger, Safran Nacelles’ Executive Vice President - Sales & Marketing commented: “I am delighted that Corsair is renewing its trust in Safran Nacelles following their first contract on their Airbus A330ceo nacelle fleet in 2019. This new contract for the A330neo nacelles demonstrates that we are a partner of choice when it comes to the support and service of its nacelles.”
Enea Fracassi, Corsair fleet & technical director, noted: “This contract is part of a global action that aims to improve the cost and efficiency of our fleet maintenance. Aircraft on ground occurrences will therefore be reduced and the work of our teams eased during the maintenance of our A330neo aircraft.”
