Collins Aerospace is expanding its longstanding support agreement for China Southern’s fleet of Boeing 787 aircraft. The extended agreement builds on the existing Dispatch flight hour support agreement for avionics onboard the airline’s aircraft.
Collins Aerospace’s Dispatch avionics service program provides high availability and maximum reliability at a predictable cost. This contract extension is likely to reduce China Southern’s operational risk and most importantly, keep its fleet flying.
“The extension demonstrates China Southern’s trust in Collins Aerospace and our global network of service centers to continue to provide our technical expertise,” said Lisa Steffen, vice president for Services and Support at Collins Aerospace.
“This builds a strong foundation for future collaboration on the Dispatch program and capability building with Collins Aerospace,” said Zeng Xiaoliang, the senior director for material management for China Southern.
Tailored to each airline’s needs, Dispatch delivers critical on-site spares, access to global asset pools, OEM-quality maintenance, and technical assistance for Collins avionics. Under the power-by-the-hour program, Collins Aerospace will support China Southern’s next-generation platforms, along with its existing aircraft.
