Safran Nacelles has strengthened its on-site repair capabilities worldwide through a long-term agreement signed today with Sabena technics’ GO TEAM support services. It covers support and services for Safran Nacelles’ product range.
With this agreement, Safran Nacelles is able to call on Sabena technics for a scope of nacelle interventions that bring the GO TEAM’s resources directly “on wing” around the world. Backed by Safran Nacelles’ OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) expertise, the Sabena technics GO TEAM provides in-field services and a new dimension to Safran’s NacelleLifeTM services offering program.
“We are supporting more customers every day around the globe, and we wanted to increase our own on-site intervention network and capability by developing partnerships," said Olivier Savin, Safran Nacelles' Executive Vice President - Customer Support & Services. "We made our selection based on Sabena technics’ ability to deploy its expert GO TEAMs when on-site interventions and repairs are needed. This reactivity is fully supported by the know-how of Safran Nacelles as the nacelle OEM, along with our own services capabilities, and our extensive knowledge in developing and implementing support and repairs.”
