Construction of new center of excellence for aircraft maintenance in Malta
SR Technics, a world leading MRO service provider, is pleased to announce that it has signed a five year extension on its maintenance cooperation agreement in Malta with easyJet. The contract will commence October 2016, and SR Technics will perform base and heavy maintenance along with cabin retrofits for easyJet’s narrow-body aircraft in Malta. In parallel, SR Technics will perform a stand-alone line of cabin retrofits over a two-year period.
SR Technics opened its facility in Malta six years ago following a landmark contract with the carrier in late 2009. The latest contract extension reinforces the strategic partnership between the two companies, ensuring operational quality and cost effectiveness on a long-term basis.
“We are happy to extend our partnership with easyJet in Malta,” said Jeremy Remacha, SR Technics’s interim CEO. “This agreement shows that our strategy in Malta is on the right course contributing to easyJet’s success. Our teams are committed to provide outstanding levels of safety, quality and reliability, and to delivering aircraft on schedule. We look forward to supporting easyJet in the years to come.”
Ian Davies, Head of Engineering and Maintenance for easyJet, commented: "We are delighted to extend our well-established partnership with SR Technics with the award of this five year deal. We have selected SR Technics Malta due to the quality of their work and standards in terms of safety, quality and efficiency. We look forward to working with them in the coming years.”
SR Technics presently operates a two-bay hangar at Malta International Airport delivering the premium MRO services that it is renowned for worldwide. The company presently employs 180 people and will expand into a three-bay facility, increasing its total number of employees in the coming months.
