Boeing will provide Uzbekistan Airways with landing gear services in an effort to help the airline more efficiently and effectively maintain its 787-8 Dreamliner fleet. This program will be completed through the Boeing Landing Gear Exchange program.
The flag carrier of the Republic of Uzbekistan will rely on Boeing to support its fleet with landing gear exchanges when and where they need them. Boeing says this program is designed to reduce maintenance time and help the airline quickly return airplanes to service.
“We are proud to provide our customers with value-added services that deliver results and drive efficiencies in their operations,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales & Marketing for The Boeing Company. “Our Landing Gear Exchange program does just that by providing a cost-effective and reliable way for customers to manage overhauls quickly and efficiently.”
Boeing’s 787 Landing Gear Exchange program provides a simple and economical solution for managing landing gear overhauls, while building on Boeing’s successful history of exchange programs. Through the offering, a carrier can exchange landing gears that need to be repaired or overhauled for another set of certified landing gear from a pool that Boeing maintains. This service eliminates the need for operators to contract, schedule and manage the overhaul process.
