Sanad Aerotech Expanding into Eastern Europe

Sanad Aerotech, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mubadala Investment Company, is expanding its network of international customers. The Abu Dhabi-based business has announced maintenance agreements Russian Nordwind and Bulgarian BH Air, two leading Eastern European operators.

The agreements come after Sanad Aerotech and Rolls-Royce announced a $6.5bn engine maintenance agreement including component repair to operators globally over a nine-year period and signify Sanad Aerotech’s collaboration with leading operators in Eastern Europe for the first time.

Nordwind is Russia’s 8th largest operator, flying scheduled and chartered flight to 85 destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America. This agreement sees Sanad Aerotech overhauling up to 14 IAE V2500 engines from now until 2022 – and is the Abu Dhabi-MRO’s first and only such agreement for V2500 engines with a Russian operator.

The Bulgarian charter airline BH Air primarily operates flights between northern and western Europe and Bulgaria. Sanad Aerotech will overhaul 5 IAE V2500 engines for the operator throughout 2019.

“We’re thrilled to increase our global footprint into the Eastern European region, expanding our work with leading operators with solid growth projections,” says, Sanad Aerotech CEO, Mansoor Janahi. “These deals represent confidence in our quality, reliability and globally competitive services that we offer from Abu Dhabi.”

Sanad Aerotech is an independent service provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services for IAE customers around the world, providing its services to more than 300 V2500 engines since 2014 with year on year growth of more than 20 percent. T

Sanad Aerotech has doubled its operations three times in the past five years, and provided services directly to more than 10 international customers as well as supporting IAE in its delivery of long-term engine maintenance contracts.
