StandardAero was recently awarded two multi-year auxiliary power unit (APU) maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) contracts to support Yamal Airlines, a Russian-based regional operator.
The contracts include a three-year agreement to provide Honeywell GTCP36-150RJ APU MRO services for Yamal’s fleet of 10 CRJ-200LR aircraft and a five-year agreement supporting Honeywell RE220 APU MRO services on Yamal’s fleet of 10 Sukhoi Superjet aircraft, which is expected to grow to 16 aircraft by early next year.
These new agreements were signed on November 24 and activated on December 1, 2017. APU services will be provided at StandardAero’s Maryville, Tenn. facility.
Yamal Airlines is based in Salekhard, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Russia, with main hub in Tyumen. It operates regional passenger services and was established in 1997.
“These long term agreements, with one of the largest fleets of the new Sukhoi Superjet 100 and a leading regional carrier in Russia, are a result of StandardAero’s reputation for delivering high quality, cost effective services and our ability to support cross-product maintenance solutions for all of Yamal Airlines’ APU MRO service requirements,” said Peter Turner, president of StandardAero Airlines & Fleets.
