AIR TANZANIA SELECTS STANDARDAERO FOR TAILORED PW150A ENGINE MAINTENANCE SOLUTION
StandardAero has recently signed an exclusive five-year time-and-material contract with Air Tanzania to provide maintenance and engineering services for the Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PW150A engines powering the flag carrier’s fleet of three Q400 regional turboprops. This new contract extends StandardAero’s relationship with Air Tanzania, the company having previously provided engine support for the airline’s Q300 aircraft.
Under the five-year contract, StandardAero – one of three P&WC network overhaul facilities worldwide for the PW150A – will provide scheduled and unscheduled engine maintenance from its state-of-the-art location in Singapore.
The tailored support solution being provided to Air Tanzania also includes Engine Condition Trend Monitoring (ECTM) services, StandardAero being uniquely placed to offer analysis expertise as both an OEM-approved Designated Overhaul Facility (“DOF”) and a CAMP Systems Designated Analysis Center (DAC). These ECTM services include troubleshooting, maintenance tracking and the development of customized maintenance programs based on operating environment and utilization, thereby allowing operators to minimize unplanned downtime and cost.
Commenting on the agreement, Mr. Ladislaus Matindi, CEO of Air Tanzania, said: “We are very proud to sign a contract with StandardAero for servicing our Q400 engines, and we believe that StandardAero will offer a total attention and maximum dedicated service to Air Tanzania. I am delighted to work with an established and well-respected organization which is ready to enhance our effort of revamping our national carrier.”
Peter Turner, President – Airlines & Fleets for StandardAero, added: “We are proud that through the signature of this agreement Air Tanzania has demonstrated its continued trust in StandardAero, and we look forward to not only meeting but exceeding the fast-growing airline’s expectations for on-time support over the next five years.”
