FL Technics, a global provider of integrated aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul services, is further extending its cooperation with Asia-Pacific carriers by signing a PBH-support agreement with Jakarta-based cargo operator Cardig Air. Under the agreement FL Technics will provide spare parts supply for the carrier’s Boeing 737-300F fleet.
According to the three-year long agreement, FL Technics will provide component, parts and consumables supply as well as other relevant spare parts support for the carrier’s fleet, including its current three Boeing 737-300 freighters and the upcoming fourth Boeing 737-300F which will be delivered to the carrier in autumn 2013. The services will be provided on the Power-By-the-Hour (PBH) basis. Amongst other services, the PBH program will cover stock positioning and management at FL Technics’ warehouse in Malaysia, as well as comprehensive component repair support. The services will be provided at Cardig Air’s main hub at Halim Perdanakusuma Airport (Jakarta, Indonesia), as well as other locations on the carrier’s route map.
“Being the world’s largest archipelago state (approx. 13.500 islands) with one of the fastest growing regional economies, Indonesia is rapidly developing its emerging aviation market to reach one of the leading positions in the Asia-Pacific. Cardig Air, as one of the most reputable Indonesian freighter/cargo airlines, will simultaneously expand following the country’s economic raising. We are glad to support the rising local industry with EASA certified services and such comprehensive solutions as PBH programs which allow to support solid and long-standing fleet maintenance strategies for years ahead. We are positive that the latest agreement with Cardig Air will assist the carrier in bringing the efficiency of its fleet to an even higher level and we will see more mutually beneficial projects in the future,” commented Jonas Butautis, the CEO of FL Technics.
