Singapore Airlines (SIA) has signed a ‘Flight Hour Services – Tailored Support Package’ (FHSTSP) contract with Airbus to integrate and provide full component support, line and base airframe maintenance, as well as fleet technical management services for SIA’s 19 A380s.
Under this 10-year agreement with Airbus, Singapore Airlines will benefit from the experience and expertise offered by Airbus in the areas of maintenance, engineering, reliability and supply chain management – partnering together with its affiliated MRO SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC).
Didier Lux, Head of Airbus Customer Services says: “This Airbus FHS-TSP selection by Singapore Airlines for its A380 fleet marks a significant endorsement of our ability to deliver tailored and competitive value-adding services.” He adds: “We are extremely honoured by this latest expression of trust on the part of Singapore Airlines and, what’s more, for extending our cooperation with SIA Engineering Company.”
The FHS-TSP contract provides full component support, line and base maintenance, as well as fleet technical management services in Singapore. The scope of this agreement guarantees aircraft availability and ‘on-time performance’ (OTP), covering technical, logistics and maintenance. Furthermore, this Airbus FHS-TSP contract supersedes the existing FHSComponents support agreement signed in July 2007 for its A380s. To date Singapore Airlines’ in-service A330s are also covered by the same FHS-TSP agreement with Airbus. Airbus FHS contracts have now been selected to cover more than 245 aircraft from operators of A320, A330, A380 and A350.
