Dubai Airshow: Building stronger links in the supply chain

Posted 18 November 2019 · Add Comment

EgyptAir strengthened ties with Boeing at the show yesterday with the two sides signing supply chain partnership agreements to give the Cairo-based flag-carrier global access to critical aircraft components.

 

The airline will receive landing gear exchange and overhaul support through the Boeing landing gear exchange programme, as well as parts for a quick engine change kit, which includes hardware and components used to efficiently build up a spare engine to service-ready condition.

At the same time EgyptAir’s MRO business (EGME) becomes an authorised provider of parts provisioning, engineering support and line maintenance service for Boeing’s customers. Ted Colbert, president and CEO of Boeing Global Services said: “Our customers rely on us to keep their aircraft in revenue service. With our global supplier network, which now includes EGME, we help make sure that our customers and their passengers fly Boeing aeroplanes with confidence every single day.”
