Corsair Chooses Safran for A330neo Nacelle Support

Corsair recently selected Safran Nacelles’ NacelleLife service package, signing an exclusive five-year agreement for maintenance and technical support on thrust reversers that equip the French airline’s Airbus A330 jetliners. This agreement involves Safran Nacelles-built thrust reversers utilized on Corsair’s fleet of four A330ceos, which are powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 turbofan engines.

Corsair selected a wide range of services from Safran Nacelles’ comprehensive NacelleLife package, including full logistics support for planned and unplanned thrust reverser removals, along with maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services.

“We welcome Corsair to the growing family of NacelleLife airlines,” said Olivier Savin, Safran Nacelles’ executive vice president – Customer Support & Services. “These customers recognize ouradvantages as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), and they benefit from Safran Nacelles’ specialized services, rapid turn-around times and superior performance for on-wing engine repairs.”

“Our choice was based on Safran Nacelles’ responsiveness, proximity and technical expertise in serving our A330ceos – which compose the core of Corsair’s jetliner fleet,” explained Corsair technical director Jean-Luc Moine.
