StandardAero to Provide Air Nostrum with PW127M and APU Services in Support of Regional Aircraft Fleet
Spanish regional airline Air Nostrum L.A.M. S.A. selects StandardAero to provide support services for the Pratt & Whitney PW127M engines powering its fleet of ATR 72-600 regional turboprops. Under the exclusive five-year agreement, StandardAero will provide Air Nostrum with PW127M hot section inspections (HSIs) and additional services from its OEM-authorized PW100 designated overhaul facilities (DOFs) in Gonesse, France, and Summerside, PE, Canada.
Air Nostrum has also renewed its selection of StandardAero as the exclusive support provider for the Honeywell GTCP36-150RJ and RE220[RJ] auxiliary power units (APUs) equipping the airline’s fleet of CRJ200 and CRJ900/1000 regional jets. Under the contract renewals, StandardAero will continue providing Air Nostrum with a range of services for the GTCP36-150RJ and RE220[RJ] from its Maryville, TN, location, which is a Honeywell-approved authorized service center for the APUs.
“I would like to take this opportunity to express our satisfaction with continuing to work with StandardAero,” says Fermín Tirado, managing director of ANEM, the new engineering and maintenance subsidiary of Air Nostrum. “Against the backdrop of the current COVID-19 situation, which has significantly affected the aviation sector, it is very important to have a reliable and consistent partner delivering a competitive cost and maintaining our engines to run at peak efficiency, which contributes to reduced CO2 emissions.”
“We are proud to have been entrusted by Air Nostrum for the support of their PW127M, RE220 (RJ) and GTCP36-150RJ fleets,” says Lewis Prebble, president of Airlines and Fleets for StandardAero. “We greatly value our long-standing relationship with Air Nostrum and are pleased to be able to contribute to the airline’s success through the provision industry-leading turn-around times and delivered quality. We are dedicated to supporting Air Nostrum and its passengers and look forward to continuing our close relationship for many years to come.”
