Posted 17 August 2021 · Add Comment

Flyadeal, the low-cost Jeddah-based airline owned by Saudi Arabian Airlines, has signed a long-term Flight Hour Services (FHS) agreement to support its A320 fleet.

The agreement includes the 1,000th aircraft supported by Airbus Flight Hour Services. The carrier will benefit from integrated material services including spare pool access, on-site-stock at the main base and components engineering and repairs. Through the FHS contract, Airbus will guarantee spare parts availability, contributing to securing aircraft technical performance.
Mikail Houari, President of Airbus Africa & Middle East, said: “Signing this agreement with Flyadeal is an important milestone; it is the firstFHS contract in Saudi Arabia and the biggest Airbus aircraft fleet to be covered by FHS.

"This agreement reaffirms our commitment to supporting Saudi Arabia’s aviation sector”, he said.

Airbus has finalised 11 FHS contracts with operators worldwide over the last six months. The latest contract agreements demonstrate the continued interest in Airbus’s integrated maintenance service, proving more relevant than ever in post-crisis times when airlines need to carefully monitor their costs and contain investments.
