European budget airline Ryanair has extended its maintenance agreement with Joramco, the engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise, for another 10 years.
The agreement will see the airline undertake 10 lines of heavy maintenance over the next decade at the MRO facility in Amman, Jordan as it continues to grow its fleet and comes as Joramco marks its 100th ‘C check’ for the airline.
Neal McMahon, Ryanair’s chief operations officer, said: “We are delighted to announce this extended agreement for 10 maintenance lines with Joramco for the next 10 years.
“Joramco has demonstrated excellent standards in their state-of-the-art facilities, and we are pleased to extend our partnership with them for 10 maintenance lines for the next 10 years as we grow our fleet to over 800 aircraft.”
The contract with Joramco is part of the airline’s mix of internal and external maintenance suppliers, with the company stating that the agreement would complement its own facilities and ensure flexibility around the placement of aircraft during winter maintenance seasons.
Ryanair is currently undergoing a significant expansion and modernisation of its fleet, including its landmark order for up to 300 Boeing 737 MAX 10 planes signed last year as part of its plan to carry more than 300 million passengers per year by 2034.
